1950x TR, ASRock Tiachi x399, 2x m.2 265 drives, 1 500g SSD, 1 4tb 7200rpm HDD.

Just installed second M.2 (finally showed up in the mail). Shows on device manager but has not been assigned drive letter. Whats up? What do I need to do? Sorry these m.2 weren't around when I last assembled a computer. I'm old, give me a break.

You might check in 'Create and format hard disk partitions' in the control panel. You might need to initialize the drive and create a partition.

Hey guys i am having the same issue, I am old as well. We didnt have sata when i built my last computer... anyway I have a 500G 860 Evo which shows up in the disk manager, and a m.2 970 pro that shows up in the device manager and when i go to properties it says "This device is working properly" but it does not show up in the disk manager to try the fix listed in that article. Any ideas?
