T570 m.2 SSD upgrade

I have a T570 (Type 20JW) that I am trying to upgrade the m.2 drive on.  I have a WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD M.2 2280 (500GB) drive that is not recognized by the system.  I have read in other threads that any M.2 drive should work.  Is this not correct?

Re: T570 m.2 SSD upgrade

Welcome to the Community

The SATA SSD you have isn't compatible with T570 as it supports m.2 2280 PCIe NVME SSD, not SATA.
