The "case" that the OP linked is indeed a usb external enclosure that supports 2.5" ssd devices.

It is not clear why the ssd is not being detected.
Possibly, the external device is not sound.
You could buy a usb to sata adapter cable like this:

Some sata hard drives require more power than a usb port can supply.
If you have two adjacent usb ports available, you can buy a adapter like this with a separate power and data usb connection.
