Installing external hard drive on new computer

For several years I have used a WD1200B015RNN as a backup for my XP computer. Finally I went to a new comp with Win 10.1 and when I tried to connect the backup drive, the computer will not recognize it. The original WD instruction sheet mentioned an installation CD which should have been with the instruction sheet but I can not find it anywhere. How can I get the new computer to recognize and use the external drive. I have lots of photos on it. Can I get necessary items off the web? Other suggestions? Thanks

Hi
Try downloading WD Discovery. It should include WD Utilities, WD Securities and WD Backup and wil launch each. You can also download each separately.
