Passport drive not recognised, plays on TV, not PC

My drive will play files ok on my TV but is not recognised by my pc or laptop, both running windows 10.
I would rather not format as it has movies on it.
Any help appreciated.

Hi dwain2,

Is the drive showing up in the disk management when connect to the PC?

Sadly not, the disk management window just locks up. When I connect the disk a pop up says disk not recognised and needs to be formatted.
I guess the boot sector is messed up but can’t access it to repair
Thanks for your reply
