SSD in Argon One m.2 not detected in windows 10

Hi There.
I recently purchased an Argon One m.2 and an Intenso m.2 SATA III 256GB SSD ( M.2 SSD SATA III Top | Intenso )

I installed my RPI4 in the case together with the SSD. I then want to do a fresh install of the Home Assistant software using the BalenaEtcher on my windows. But for this to work i need to connect my SSD to my Windows laptop using an USB cable. I tried this with both a USB-A to USB-C and USB-A to USB-A cable. from the lower USB port in the Argon case to a USB port in my laptop. But my windows PC never detects the SSD as an USB drive.

Am I missing something obvious that i need to do for this to work? Or is what i am trying to do just not possible?

Hi,

USB3-A to USB3-A should work as aspected.
