How to Fix Sandisk 1TB SSD Not Getting Detected

My Sandisk 1TB SSD is not getting detected in my MacBook Air-M2. The same SSD gets detected in my Windows laptop. I am using a USB C -USB C cable. I tried formatting in Ex-FAT in my Windows, but it still failed. How can I fix this error?

To solve this Sandisk 1TB SSD not getting detected on MacBook Air, you can first try mounting your SSD in Disk Utility. Here are the detailed steps you need to follow:

  • Step 1. Navigate to System Preferences > Disk Utility.
  • Step 2. Ensure your external hard disk is listed in the left panel.
  • Step 3. You can choose and click your hard drive. Choose "Mount" from the drop-down menu. If everything goes well, you will find everything in the Finder under the Devices section.

You can also run the First Aid in Disk Utility to fic SSD not showing up on Mac:
