SSD conflict

I need some help. I bought a new SSD. I put it into my PC and gave it the letter D. later this day I put in an old SSD, but it also had the letter D. I opened the disk manager and renamed my new SSD to F but windows can't find my old one. It's not in device manager, disk manager, disk part, Samsung magician. The old SSD is not dead. I used it a few hours before I put in my new one.

 

Windows 10

New SSD: Crucial BX500

Old SSD Samsung QVO 850

Have you tried reconnecting the Sata Data cable from the motherboard?

Connect the SSD and boot into BIOS

See if the BIOS can recognize the disk.

Run CMD Prompt in Administrator Mode, type "diskpart" and then "list disk"

Hm

From my expirence windows just auto relables drives (temporiraily) if a drive has its letter taken

Id run "diskpart" in a admin command prompt windows and see if it can see that drive with "list disk"

i believe the diskpart command it list disk, not listdisk, so the command probably wont work

I could use some help with this!

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)
