I just bought a WD BLUE SSD 500GB to upgrade my older Toshiba laptop HD to SSD. Running Windows 10. I have the SSD attached to a SATA cable and plugged into the computer’s USB port with the intent to clone.
The laptop does not see the SSD in either File Explorer or Disk Management. Nothing. The USB ports recognize other items like thumb drives so that isn’t the issue.
I tried plugging the SATA cable and ttached SSD into my Surface 3 and it shows up there as expected. So that’s not the problem either.
What can I do?
