Windows® does not recognize my SSD with a drive letter when I connect it, what do I do?

Please make sure to have data and power cables properly connected to your SSD.
If this is that case, you will have to initialize your SSD in Windows® in order to use it.
Please use the steps below:
  • Please go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management
  • Once the SSD is recognized, a popup will appear
  • Please follow the instructions to initialize and format your drive
  • Please assign a drive letter to the drive
Once the process has finished, your new SSD should appear in Windows® Explorer with the previously assigned drive letter.
