I have an SSD and bought external enclosure USB 3.0 for it, but when I insert it in my Dell laptop (windows 10 os) it does not appear on my computer window although it was working fine with an older USB 2 enclosure. When I ran Disk Management it appears as 'Disk 2, Removable E:, No Media' and on Device Manager there seems to be no problem showing. I tried to open it on other laptop (windows 7 os) and desktops (windows 7 and 10 os) it works fine on that machines with this new enclosure. Also I have tried to change drive letter in disk management and to update drive by search online but it doesn't work as well.

Thank you

  • Do you have a USB 3 port? – Ramhound Jul 24 '16 at 21:14
  • Format the drive with NTFS type File System. – Raktim Biswas Jul 24 '16 at 22:24
  • What type of enclosure is it? May need to break out that manual. – Musselman Jul 25 '16 at 3:01
  • My enclosure is one like this amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00TGU0NOS/… – Ghaith Jul 26 '16 at 12:16
  • Yes all my laptop ports are USB 3.0 – Ghaith Jul 26 '16 at 12:17

It seems the SSD is beginning to develop some fault, in order to be able to get your data, please perform a SSD recovery and then format to see if issue is resolved. You can check the link below for guidelines http://www.latestsolution.com/2016/06/how-to-recover-files.html
