Based on your screenie, the SSD is neither partitioned/formatted nor initialized.
the drive shown with the black band (111.79)GB. (Disk 1)
Right click on the drive and select format. This will take you to the format wizard, select "simple disk", and then defaults, and ok.. at the end, it will ask you to assign the drive a drive letter. this should also initialize the drive (the band will turn from black to blue). If it does not, right click the drive, and this time select initialize.
EDIT: If you want the SSD yto have a lower drtive letter (ie D:\)
Right click on your current drive D:\ which is one of your CD optical drives, and select "change drive letter". Change it to F:\, or the next letter up that appears in the list. This will free up letter D: for you to assign to the SSD.
