If the drive is missing, it isn't because of a driver issue. It is because of a formatting or hardware issue with the hard drive itself. To solve, you would need to troubleshooot formatting issues.
The best way that I solve the issue with new drives not showing up, is I attach the drive to a computer and run the Live CD of gParted.
In gParted, you can diagnose if the hard drive has a hardware problem.
If you do not see the drive in gParted, except in very rare cases, you probably have a bad drive and you should return it or exchange the drive for a replacement immediately.
However, if the drive shows up in gParted, all is good, now you probably just need to set up the partition tables and format it. How to do this is beyond the scope of this question, you could create a new question if you need help how to do that.
After formatting the new drive, exit gParted and now boot into Windows and attach your SSD. Your SSD should now show up. If it does not, go into the Windows > Administrative Tools > Computer Management, and format the disk.
