Win 10, can not see a SSD any longer, that the system was installed on and worked for a while.

Capacity 240GB
Firmware Revision 1.01
Interface Type SATA I (1.5GB/s)
Life Left (Percent) 99
Model Name OCZ-ARC100


Another Win 10 PC can not recognize the Drive via USB adapter, however, a chrome PC can see all the files seems just fine.

Please help.

So the SSD isn't dead then if the chromebook can see the files.

My suggestion - pull the data off ASAP (assuming it's important), then either spend time getting it to work in the Win systems or just get another drive. You can get a name brand 500gb for less than $150.

Thank you. I pull the data and reverted back to the HDD as a system drive.
The windows still do not see the SSD. Should I RMA it to OCZ?

Yes, I tried it but got no luck. The HDD is using the same wire just fine.

If you have your data and your PC is working then yes I would contact OCZ to see about warranty work. This might be a known issue they have a solution for or the drive may need to be replaced.

After learning that windows does not see the SSD OSZ overnights me a new drive. Oh, well. Good deal I used a chrome OS to get the files, because now the chrome does not see the drive as well.

BTW, I ordered the SSD from TD just this past May.
