SSD drive seen as a CD-Rom in My Computer

Hello

I was trying to reset an SSD drive to its original factory. To do it, I follow the instruction from Intel SSD utility to erase the drive. To do so it was ask to kill the partition.

Nicely killed, the drive is not recognize anymore

I did try to see from the Dos command "List Disk" and the drive is not seen

Any idea how to resolve it?

Shame on me...

By looking at the Disk Management, I saw that

1) the ssd that was listing Intel CD-Rom was a CD-ROM , was infarct my CD-ROM reader with the Intel disk inside. Intel was the name of the disk, not the drive

2) The SSD was on the list, but no partition install. After installing it, My computer was seeing it
