Partition the drive on Windows 10

Feb 7, 1 0 10, 0. Hi there! I am trying to reformat an external seagate harddrive for use on my windows 7 running PC. The drive used to be used on a mac so is probably in the wrong format so isn't automatically detected when I plug it into my PC. I can find the drive using Device Manager and it says the drive is working fine, but it doesn't show up on windows explorer or my computer, which is where other tutorials say to reformat from Any guesses as to how to detect and reformat the drive for use on the PC?

Unfortunately the old mac is now cactus so I cant just reformat from there Thanks a lot!
