    After playing a round for a good while I figured it out. Win7 apparently dont show the ssd as connected in the my computer(which I expected it to) screen unless it has been formated first as XP did. I ended up clicking on computer>right click computer feild>manage>storage>then right click unknown drive and create a simple volume(for my use, there many other options available). Anyone else have this problem.......there you go. :)
