WD Blue M.2 2280 isn't recognized by my laptop

I just got a new Lenovo Legion 5 and wanted to get some additional storage so I bought the “WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD M.2 2280” however after installing it hasn’t appeared in my devices and drives or my disk management what do I do?!


Hi @Topxav,

Please refer below link Windows or macOS Cannot Find My Drive:

Please check & try to fix the below issue:

  1. Initialize your SSD in case if it is not initialized.
  2. Assign a drive letter to your SSD.
  3. Check if the SSD file system is supported by Windows or not.
  4. Check if the SSD disk driver installed properly or not.

hopefully, your drive will be recognized.
