Hey there, techiegardener.
Is this is a new SSD? Or have you been using it without issues up until now? Have yoу checked if it is recognized in Disk Management? Is the SSD detected in the computer's BIOS/UEFI?
I'd recommend that you try it with a different computer, or at least try it with a different SATA port and a different SATA cable, to see if the same thing happens. When you say drivers, I assume you mean the SSD's firmware?
Please let me know how everything goes.
