Probably a permission issue. Plug it into the Win 10. Does it assign the drive a Drive letter? Then it's not a driver issue. In File Explorer double click on This PC and find and click on the new drive letter. Right click and select Properties, then Security. Click on Administrators(...) Look in the lower pane to see if Administrators has Full Control. Expect they don't. Click on Advanced. Where it says Owner click on Change. Type in administrators then Check Names (the typed word should change to Administrators (...) ). Hit OK. OK. OK. Right click and select Properties, then Security. Click on Edit Click on Administrators(...) Look in the lower pane and check the box for Full Control. OK then Advanced Change Permissions
Check the box at the bottom that says:
Replace All Child...
You may get a few files that don't allow permission changes. Tell it to Skip them.
Once it finishes you should be able to find the drive in File Explorer and access all files.
