I’m having a problem with a dead laptop Acer A515-44 from which I would like to recover data from the WD PC SN520 M.2 disk, which came installed with the laptop. I bought an external M.2 enclosure, and connected the adapter to my PC via USB C.
The adapter itself gets recognized, but the disk doesn’t. I tried also with another M.2. WD blue 250Gb disk, with the same adapter, and everything works fine, it recognizes the disk immediately. I also tried with a second adapter and no luck.
I’ve also tried to boot directly from the disk, and had no succes, nothing is being recognized.
I also have a second Acer A515-44, and I’ve tried to switch the M.2. disks between them and everything boots and works fine. Later on, I also tried to read the disk on a Linux Ubuntu 22.04 device, and had no succes as well.
The OS on the disk is Windows 11.
I have never had such problems with disk readings, and I am quite experienced with IT and PC hardware. To me it seems like the WD PC SN520 M.2 disk doesnt have a controller on board,
and there for it doesnt get recognized at all. Is that even possible, what do you guys think about my issue?
Any help would be much aprichiated.
I added the pictures from Disk managment and the disks which I’ve used.
