T5 not detected after in-camera format (exFAT)

PostSat May 18, 2019 4:59 pm

I got a new Samsung T5, successfully tested it for speed on a Mac at work and a PC at home, then formatted it using the camera, (I think cause the camera couldn't see it?? but I can't remember if that is why). I chose "exFAT", since the only other option was "OS X Extended" and I am on Windows 10.

The drive is still working in the camera (BMPCC4K), but now my Windows 10 computer does not see it at all when I plug it in. I tested all USB ports. Also tried a Samsung TV just to see if that worked but the TV also didn't even flinch when I plugged it in.

I tried different pieces of software recommended on various posts online but nothing sees the SSD. I am kinda worried this might not be a common issue with a simple solution. :(

Help!

Format it exfat in-camera, then take it to the pc and deep format in Windows Explorer, (not quick format). Once finished, reformat it in-camera and it should be good to go.
