so today i got a samsung 860 evo and after installing it my computor recognised it but then it wouldnt show up in file explorer so i went to disk management and it wasnt there . i have it plugged in via a sata cable but its not like other peoples sta cables its like the power and data cable in one so i was thinking that may be the issue but im unsure. help would be appreciated :)

Where's the other end of sata data cable plugged in?

What's the model name of motherboard? Can you show photo of it ?
Do you have any M.2 drives in your system? Those can disable some sata ports.
sorry for wasting your time man
not meaning to be a pest asking all this stuff bc i feel real dumb right now and i think ill call it a night and work on this in my own time tomorrow but i cant thank you enough for your generosity with your time and patience sorry if i was annoying
have a splendid night/ day
