Had the same issue, try putting it in and out several times, then restart your machine and it should be recognised. I was scared too that something is wrong when my 840 EVO ssd wasn't recognized but all I needed was restart.

Plug it in, boot up the computer, and then go to Start > Right Click 'My Computer' > Manage > Disk Management > find your second Drive > Right click and 'Set Partition / Drive (whatever) as Active'

If that doesn't work, you may need to fiddle with your BIOS.
