Transferring files from WD My Passport Formatted for Mac to Windows

I formatted my Passport for Mac, but I only have Windows now. When I plug my WD Passport to laptop with Windows, “access is denied. D:\ is not accessible”. I would like to recover my files from My Passport, and format the device for Windows and Mac (or only for Windows) and put them back on the device.

Please help. Thank you.
