When I plug the device to the PC I'm not able even to see the device !Please anyone that can help me! I was very close to divorce my wife.......

When she took the drive and formatted it on her Mac, she made it HFS+. A drive formatted that way will show in some areas on a PC but it won't give you access to the data.
Typically you can do a reformat on the disk and it will be seen on your PC again...but remember...doing a reformat will delete anything that is currently on there.
Here's a quick walkthrough on how to do the format:
(The steps are for Windows XP, however it's the exact same steps for Vista or 7...the only difference is you're going to right click on Computer instead of My Computer.)
If you run into any snags or have any questions, reply back and I'll do what I can to help you.
Best of luck!
