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?


do you see the drive in disk management? that is where you need to format the drive from.
