It is most likely the unnamed drive in Device Manager. Click on that drive, select Driver tab then attempt to Update Driver by going online, or browsing to a flash stick/CD where you have loaded the driver for the SSD.

Once you update the driver, or if there is a driver for that Device already, then check in Disk Management for the drive and assign it a letter.
