WD Elements Play 2TB drive not accessible in explorer

Hi All,

I use this mainly for watching movies on the TV.

I was having a sort out and decided rather thn delete each one individually I woulld reformat and then load on all my new films.

I reformatted through settings on the tv screen (not through a laptop or desktop).

It didn’t take long and went back to the home screen.

I then switched off and connected to my Laptop.

The drive is there to see in explorer but when I click on it it says drive is not accessible.

I tried on my desktop as well with same result

Any ideas would be most appreciated
