Sounds like you need to format the SSD Mac OS Extended (Journaled). When the SSD was installed, did it appear in Disk Utility at all?

Now I have formatted it, but still no action. I think maybe the cable is defect.

Possibly. Try swapping in a new SATA cable. If the SSD can be recognized via USB, it may be a bad cable, but also check the connectors as the SSD is thinner than the normal 9 MM height requirement.
