Unable to mount external PCIE M.2 SSD

I am trying to mount an external PCIE M.2 SSD that I bought from Corsair using an external enclosure. It is connected to my machine using a USB interface. The motherboard has an M.2 drive already.

I can get some output if I run lsusb, but it only contains information about the controller (JMIcron). I can't get any information about the actual drive.

I've checked the motherboard FAQs, this drive is supported. I've tried attaching it to my Mac, it can't detect it either.

Oh, and the BIOS doesn't detect it either. I suppose it would have shown up as a USB device.

My goal was to get the drive ready before I rebuild my machine. If I can't get this to work, I guess my best  option is to go ahead and rebuild the machine with the M.2 drive inserted into the motherboards PCIe bus connector, and hope that it can be detected.

Re: Unable to mount external PCIE M.2 SSD

we need some actual info, plug the drive in and post outputs of:

lsusb
lsblk
journalctl -b -k
fdisk -l

Re: Unable to mount external PCIE M.2 SSD

Below is my output. Note that I've redacted some info, and also nvme0n1 is another NVME drive that is working. Also, the drive that I am trying to mount is a Corsair MP600 LPX 1TB.

journalctl -b -k generated so much output that I'm showing a diff below, where first.txt contained output when the drive was not plugged in, versus second.txt which contained output when the drive was plugged in.

Re: Unable to mount external PCIE M.2 SSD

only thing i can see there is the external enclosure is for PCIE Gen3 and the corsair drive is Gen4, a quick search tells me that pcie is supposed to be backwards compatible so it should work.

have you got a gen3 ssd you can try in that enclosure to see if that will work ?
