Sandisk internal SDSSDP-064G-G25 as an external drive?

I bought a Sandisk internal SDSSDP-064G-G25 to use on an older parallel drive laptop but the SATA to parallel adapter is not suitable. So I put it in an external USB 3 box. The box and the drive are seen by device manager but the drive is not listed in the Drive list so I cannot format it or use it.

Is there a way of making it useable as an external drive?


SSD and HDD come with no partition or format on the drive so you will have to go to Disk management to initialize the disk, create a partition, assign a drive letter, and format the drive.
