I bought recently a Kingston A2000 1TB - SA2000M8/1000G M.2 SSD, and i put it in my PC.
My problem is, that I cant see in my Disk Management, so I cant make any particion, but I see in BIOS, and Device manager.
My BIOS has the latest update, my windows 10 too.
Device manager says everything is fine.
I tested on BIOS too, it also says everything is fine.
I also tried to reinstall my windows, didnt work.
My PC:
Motherboard: Gigabyte ab350m-gaming 3
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
SSD: Kingston SA400S37/120G
HDD: Toshiba DT01ACA100
GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX1660S
Anyone have any idea what is the problem here?

did you check to see if it had been added to a new storage space?

Sounds like the reader is working but the sorage controler is doa rma the drive or get ahold of seller and request a replacement i actually wouldn't waste my rma request and a new product
Okay, Thank you.
I'll try it in my friend's computer, and see what happens, then i will request rma.
 
Nope, I built it.
Yeah so it shouldn't have any added in tpm security settings or any of that the drive should be a plug and playable drive. Unless did you try any otger m.2 slot on the board you may have it plugged into a "inactive/unsuported" port with some mobos if the certain m.2 slots aren't being used before others they will be "on/but inactive in other words you will see the drive but have no access to the drive

This board only has 1 m.2 slot.
 
I looked everywhere and I found this, and this.
There's your issue your system is locked to new devices and saddly to say. It generally requires a system refresh to disable this so you will need to back up your files... It's a saftey feture so no one can alter you device without permission it's a pain in the butt to deal with. You can try just disabling it but just so you know it may force a system reset

Sounds good and im sorry i just relooked over the photo's and i missed what i was looking at the second photo you posted was security option and set to system yes your drive is probably being locked from the system through this should allow you to access the drive
