    Help on SSD installation

    Hi everyone! Looking for some help on installing a Samsung 840Evo SSD.

    I've got the physical installation done, but because the T200 does not have a CD drive to run the installation software. Is there any online software equivalent I can download to install it that way? Or am I SOL and need to get a separate CD reader just to install the software?

    Thanks in advance!

    You may need to clarify what type of software you are referring to. Are you running Windows successfully on the SSD?

    Samsung has their Magician software for optimizing their SSD products. You can go to the support page for the EVO 840 and download it quite easily.

    I'm actually not sure what software is necessary to make the SSD operational. I have the magician software installed, but when I try to access the SSD or look for it, it's not there. I did download the magician software off the site for the EVO 840, but nothing is really happening with the t200 acknowledging there's another HD there.

    I think what you are looking for would be the data migration software. If you do a search for Samsung Data Migration you will find Samsung's download page. You can migrate the contents to the new drive over USB.

    You have to format the drive or windows doesn't see it. Go into Control Panel- Administrative Tools- Computer Management- Storage\Disk Management. From there you can create a partition and format the drive.

    Using the Samsung Migration software no pre format is required.

    Have you tried booting into the bios to determine if the tablet is recognizing the ssd? That would be my first step in troubleshooting. If it's not there you need to determine why. If it is there, then as stated, it needs to be initialized and prepared, either through the samsung software or windows directly.

    Does the drive show up under Disk Drives in device manager?
