    Have you read through the entire thread here?


    Is the Crucial listed as supported there? What’s the adapter model number?

    (Sounds like wither an unsupported SSD or a bad adapter from eBay or even a bad SSD (it happens)). There are ways of testing the SSD and the adapter - plugging the SSD into a USB C enclosure that you know works, and getting another ($10) adapter and seeing if that fixes the issue. The thread above contains a variety of examples that work).

    You HAVE been "helped".
    Read through the posts in the URL listed in reply 2 above.
    That will be A LOT of reading.
    But you probably won't find your answer unless you read it all.

    Sorry for the late reply, I didn't see this thread until now.

    I purchased this style of Sintech adapter (but your style should work as well):

    For the SSD, I am using the Inland Premium 1TB SSD - which works perfectly and is pretty fast in my 2015 MBP 15.


    You did not say how it didn't work for you. I initially thought I had a problem because I could not get the screw hole to line up after seating the adapter. I figured out that the adapter required some force and audibly snapped into place when seated properly.

    It has been working perfectly for a few months now without a single issue...

    Is the MacBook running the latest bootrom? Is the drive seen by a Mojave or high Sierra installer?
