Couldn't hurt to do a secure erase on it. That way you know you're starting from a "factory fresh" state, with all blocks zeroed and TRIMmed. Then format just like you would a new drive.
it just gives me unknown info, capacity 0.00, and that's a working ssd
That's not good. Sounds like the drive may be toast.
Have you tried connecting it to another system to see if it is recognized properly?
