    Windows 10 Not Recognizing SSD's When In External Drive Bays


    I have purchased several SSD drives that I am cloning to upgarde current systems. I am using a USB 3.0 Drive enclosure that recognizes standard SATA drives but not the SSD. When I attach the same enclosure on a Windows 7 machine it sees the drive right away and assigns it a drive letter. The SSD does not appear in disk management either on Windows 10.

    Thoughts?

    I have 2 win 10 systems. No usb 3.0 drive one Tb or larger can be recognized. Not even through Paragon Drive Manager software which on other windows systems can see drives windows does not. Driver are fine my NAS usb 3.0 ports. Seen some hit and miss solutions but none work for me.

    Try a different enclosure.
    Starting with Windows 8 I ran into compatibility issues with the bridge chipset (typically JMicron or Asmedia) inside the enclosure on some machines. The solution, when available, was to update the firmware of the bridge controller, but officially endorsed firmware updates are hard to come by.
