I bought a new NVMe SSD Transcend TS256GMTE110S, plugged it into the motherboard, and now the problem starts from here. The SSD will show the name in BIOS, but when I want to format the drive during setup, an error pops up that this partition cannot be formatted. I even tried using Diskpart in CMD, but somehow I can select it but not the command clean.

When you type clean, the message appears: "DiskPart encountered an error: specified a device that does not exist. See the system event log for more information." This is a common error, which may be caused by a bad sector, no permissions to access the drive, mismatching drive letters, and so on. There are several ways you can try to fix it. Based on my experience, I suggest you change the drive letter, check and fix bad sectors, and gain permission to the SSD.
Turning to reliable third-party software may help a lot to solve this issue. EaseUS Partition Master, an all-in-one disk manager, can check for bad sectors and assign a drive letter to your SSD.
You can use this tool to:
Way 1. Assign (New) Drive Letter
Follow the guide to assign a drive letter for your SSD.
Step 1. Run EaseUS Partition Master, right-click the target SSD, and select "Change Drive Letter."
Step 2. Click the down arrow, select a drive letter for this partition from the drop-down menu, then click OK.
Step 3. Click "Execute Task" and then click "OK."
Way 2. Check Bad Sectors
EaseUS Partition Master can identify and find bad sectors of SSD and display them to you with a red mark, allowing you to easily understand bad sectors. Here's how:
Step 1. Open EaseUS Partition Master. Right-click the SSD disk you want to check, and click "Surface Test."
Step 2. This command will be executed immediately, and all bad sectors will be marked in red.
Way 3. Gain the Permissions to the SSD
Insufficient permissions can cause this error. Using File Explorer can help remove this error. Please follow the detailed steps below:
Step 1. Go to File Explorer and right-click on the hard drive showing the error. Next, click Properties from the drop-down menu, navigate to the Security tab, and click Edit.
Step 2. Under the "Permissions for Authorized Users" section, check "Full Control" under the "Allow" option, click Apply, and then click OK.
Now, try to format your SSD again to see if you have removed this issue.
