Pretty much the title above. Here's a image. https://www.dropbox.com/s/56bmq76nviy4xaf/Windows%20image.JPG The drive is a 840 Pro 256GB. Can anyone help?

If the Samsung 840 Pro is a band new drive, before you can use it in any Windows operating system, you need to go to Disk Management and initialize it. All the new SSDs and hard drives are sold with no file system. Tutorial/link click HERE

You're welcome. Reminder, the Samsung SSD currently has version 4.3 of the Magician Software available for download.

If you go into Disk Management (option after right-clicking the Start menu), can you see the disk in there?

If so, right click and select "Change Drive Letters and Paths". Assign a letter other than C.

Thanks its formatting as I speak. I totally forgotten about that part, I haven't done it in a long time. Thanks very much.
