SSD partition table gets destroyed when I unplug it

I just bought my first SSD an hour ago, thought it was first hand, but I saw the box was open and there were files inside the SSD when I plugged it in to move my files over to the new drive.

Turns out, I did a couple of tests, SMART reports the disk is healthy. I created a new partition, unplugged, replugged it, and voila, the disk didn't show up. Went to gparted on linux to find I had no partition table. Created an msdos partition table and a fat32 partition, unplugged and replugged, and they were gone. Tested that about 3 times, no luck. I also tried with a gpt partition table, but I wasn't lucky either.

SMART output:

I may be doing something wrong, but if I'm doing so, I gotta relearn how disks work. Thank you very much.
