Trying to install a new adata ssd as an OS drive but having nothing but grief. I cannot access it to clean it or use it in any way. I can see it in disc management but cannot do a damn thing with it. Any advice before I rma?

If Win / Linux can't install, usually not a good sign. Can you format in Disc Management, and copy some files over?

So far my hdd failures are worse than my ssd failures. Thankfully I purchased extra coverage.

Stoanee, sounds like what happened to my intel SSD this past summer. I was right in assuming it was dead as intel accepted the RMA and sent me a fixed one.
