Contact the seller and apply for an RMA if you still got it under warranty!

Have you plugged the faulty SSD's SATA cable into a different Motherboard port? It could be the MB Port that is bad.

Sorry late reply
See this mate Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

Disregard all else except points 3 & 4 to see what it looks like

So > Start > type "cmd" (no quotes) > right click on the small blue box that will appear at the top of the Start menu > Run as admin > then type in the black and white box "diskpart" (upper or lower case) > DISKPART will appear > type "select disk" (no quotes) and it should show you all the drives you have in the machine.

Pic is of the machine I am on right now disk 0 is my C: drive disk 2 is my backup external.

If the drive doesn`t show up any pc then it`s toast, contact the maker to see if it can be replaced or chuck it in the trash.

There`s no magic formula to make it work, either it does or it doesn`t.

Then you have every right to return it.

Wasn`t it properly packaged in a box ?

I would just do a refund (RMA) saying it doesn`t work, and not even mention the postman.

Yep after all this looks pretty certain it is done for the only other thing i can think of is use a Ubuntu boot and see if it gets picked up with that but even if it was it is probably a bad drive that got past the testing they do on the drives as they go through the production line.
