Hello folks,

I've got an SSD from a Toshiba laptop, and I tried using it on my PC, after the drivers got automatically installed, I didn't see the drive in My Computer. So I went into Disk management to see if it's there. First time entering it asked me to select the way that I'd like to initialize my drive (mbr or gpt) and I selected MBR. It took a minute, and after that it gave an error: "the request could not be completed because of an i/o device error". It doesn't matter if I choose MBR or GPT, same error. Also, under the drive's name it says: "unknown" and "not initialized". I tried deleting the drive using diskpart, but it gives the same error as before, also tried using diskpart to list all volumes and it only showed my main hdd's volumes, not the SSD's one.

Note: Hard Disk Sentinel sees the drive just fine, it has no SMART errors or any bad or weak sectors.
The drive's full name: TOSHIBA THNSNC128GCSJ

Is there anything I could try?
