I am trying to replace my failing HDD with a Crucial CT1000MX500SSD1 using a StarTech USB3S2SAT3CB (USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA HDD/SDD Cable w/UASP) and getting nowhere in a hurry. When I plug the USB to SATA into my Windows 10 in a USB 3.0 port the computer does not see it. It doesn’t show in the computer anywhere in the Device manager. I have connected it to two other Windows 10 computers. It didn’t show up on either of them as well.
I am a layman. However, after reading reviews about the USB3S2SAT3CB it looked like a “piece of cake.” I have also downloaded EaseUSA Disk Copy and Acronis True Copy to make the clone. The only reason that I downloaded two is that I assumed I wasn’t doing something correctly when my computuer would not identify the SSD.
Any help would be much appreciated.
