Why can't I see the SSD connected via USB port under "My Computer"

Hi all,

I decided to upgrade my Asus X550CA laptop with a Crucial SSD. I wanted to clone my existing hard drive however when I connected the SSD to my laptop via USB connector, I could not find it under My Computer.

I have tried to find am answer with no luck. When I go in disk management I can see the new SSD there in the bottom half. At the top half i see only C: and D: drives. Also, the driver for the new SSD is installed because I can see the SSD in Device Manager and I can elect it to unplug. So it seems that windows is not assigning it a drive letter. I have windows 8.1.

Has anyone one had a similar issue?

Thanks in advance,

GA

By the way, it is the free version of EaseUS. By initializing the disk do you mean I have to partition it?

Thanks

Hi genti agastra , i suppose it is a new SSD, yes, if you see in disk management on the SSD device, means your SSD is detected on the computer.

The reason you are not seeing the Drive letter, is most probably, the disk is not initialized yet.

what software do you use for cloning?

most cloning software should be "smart" enough if you start the cloning, it will see this new SSD drive as the destination

Actually I got it to work after watching a you tube video. In case someone runs in similar issue, the SSD needs to be initialized. I went in Disk Management, where my SSD showed as unallocated. Right click on it and choose New Volume. Then in the window that pop up check assign letter drive, format and that's it. Worked for me.

Do you use the correct usb Cable?

Sometimes you need a two port Power usb to get the correct Power to the hdd.

I have tried two types of USB to SATA connectors. I am pretty sure that is not the problem
