problem SSD upgrading MacBook Air

I bought SSD drive "Toshiba THNS128GG4BMAA for apple macbook air Rev B&C" (Ebay)

I installed it into my MB543LL (late 2008) instead old Samsung HDD. But Apple disk utilites does not see this drive and i can not format or install OS

Is there a way to make this SSD visible by Apple disk utilite ?

The drive is probably a 3GB and needs to be slowed down to 1.5 GB to be seen. See if the drive has jumper pins and try 1&2 or 3&4.
