Default Can I save this SSD? - 05-04-2012, 07:56 PM

The 32GB Sandisk SSD I have in my 9v cannot be read or formatted by either OS X or Windows.

In the BIOS it shows 0GB. I've read people saying that means it's finished.

Does anyone have advice on how it can be revived?

Thanks a lot.

What is a 9v?

If you have a Mini 9 it only takes a PATA SSD which is designed for the Mini 9.
