I’ve tried everything (or so i think). I made sure that i physically installed it correctly and even tried 3 different SATA cables in every SATA port the motherboard has to offer. Still doesn’t appear. I checked the device manager, it still doesn’t appear. And finally i clicked on “show hidden folders” since i heard some empty hard drives don’t show sometimes. Also if it helps, i installed windows 10 on my ssd (this is a brand new build)
Have you checked on disk management and device manager to verify if the appear?
It doesn’t appear in my disk manager
sorry for the late reply.
Try a different computer see if this can help you out, also you can try a different SATA Power port on the computer.
I don’t have a different computer I can access. And I tried multiple sata ports, sata power ports and sata cables. Nothing works
I recommend you contact WD support directly. It is possible the drive has to be replaced.
