Toshiba M.2 512GB

I am examining a home made computer and having difficulty with an M.2 storage device.  The main storage inside the home made computer was a Seagate 2TB HDD, however, I believe the operating system is on the M.2 as I've already completed the examination of the 2TB HDD without any difficulty. 

I removed the M.2 from the computer and placed it onto an M.2 to SATA adapter, which I then connected to a Logicube Falcon-NEO.  Under Drive information it displays "FAILED TO READ 0 BYTES".  When attempting to image it gives an error message, "ERROR: I/O Error on source!".  

Using a Tableau write blocker and a Sabrent USB 3.0 SATA hard drive flat docking station, I attempted to obtain an image via FTK Imager.  Unfortunately, when I insert the M.2 using the SATA adapter, the docking station light turns off, and there is no connection.  

Any assistance is greatly appreciated, thank you,

Carver

What exact model is it?  It seems to me that you might be trying to use a SATA M.2 adapter to read a NVMe M.2 SSD.  SATA != NVMe.

@amne5ia you are correct, it is NVMe.  I was able to use Paladin to obtain an image.  I will have to look for adapters specific to NVMe.
