Bought a new blank PCIe SSD and an external enclosure (it is going to replace the internal PCIe SSD of a notebook). However after plugging it in the drive does not show up, even in disk tool programs.
Let me reiterate: the drive is new from Amazon and has never been formatted.
How do I diagnose whether it's the drive (or whatever the proper term is for these memory-chips-on-a-board) or the enclosure?
EDIT 2: It plays the "device connected" sound when plugged in and the little blue light goes on, but that seems to just indicate power. On Mac OS X, USB status shows the enclosure but with only 3 sub-devices, my other external enclosure (SATA mechanical hard drive) shows 5 sub-devices. Still need to try it on Windows.
