If this is a samsung, on the actual HD, you will see the jumper labels like the one below.

Usually it will say:

M = Master
S = Slave
Cs = Cable select

but if it is not visible anymore and you have 4 sets of pins, then the slave may either be the 3rd or the 2nd if you are looking at it from the back.

if you have other questions just let me know.

WINDOWS SET UP FAILS TO LOCATE THE HARD DRIVE ACESS SEEMS TO BE DENIED


Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable
then re- start the computer and see if it is recognised. some models of older hard drives needed a driver installed during set up -- you usually have to put the driver on a floppy disc and hit the f6 button when prompted by windows set up to install third party drivers . I hope this helps

I have a Samsung SP2514N (250GB/7200rpm/8M/PATA) drive that I am trying to use as a USB drive on my laptop with Vista on it. The device manager shows that there is a drive there, but that is all. It does...


If your using an external drive case, the jumper pins should be set at "single". If that doesn't work you can try moving the jumper till the drive shows up, or use no jumper at all. If it still doesn't work after trying all jumper positions or no jumper then the drive could be bad. Make sure to power off the drive before changing the jumper.

How can i make my Samsung sp0802 hard drive become the master instead of the slave... thank you very much


Hi Good day!!! follow this

1. Decide which hard drive will be the startup (master) drive. If this drive was the startup drive previously, or if it's a new hard drive, then the master drive designation will already be set.

2. To change the designation of a new drive to be a slave drive, skip to step 4.

3. To change the designation of an existing drive to be a slave drive: Turn off the computer, unplug the power cord, remove the drive from its drive bay, and disconnect the drive from its power cord and ribbon cable.

4. Check the hard drive documentation or the label on the drive itself for master/slave jumper settings.

5. Find the jumpers on the circuit board of the drive. Jumpers are plastic plugs with metal sleeves that form a circuit between a pair of pins. Jumper locations are labeled on the board with a J followed by a number (such as J20).

6. Use tweezers or very small pliers to remove or reposition the jumpers to the configuration shown in the documentation or on the disk label.

7. Install (or reinstall) the hard drive in the computer. (See "How to Install a Second Hard Drive.")

My samsung 40 gb hdd not detectin inany computer after new installation


Is your hard drive a SATA (Serial ATA, a thin cable) or IDE (a fat, usually gray cable)?

If your hard drive is a SATA, be sure that the both the power and data cables are securely connected to the hard drive (and data to the motherboard). Then go into your BIOS and make sure your hard drive is seen by the motherboard. It should read a model number similar to that of the model indicated on the hard drive label.

If your hard drive is an IDE, make sure you've selected the CS (cable select) mode on the hard drive using the correct jumper setting. It should be displayed on the label using a small diagram. If it isn't, you can use the Samsung HDD Jumper Settings page to check the settings. Also be sure the cables are secured, as IDE cables can be difficult to fully connect. If this is the case, try using just the hard drive on its own without any other IDE/SATA devices connected, and see if your motherboard detects it.

Try different cables for either type to make sure it's not just the cables that are causing the issue.

If all the above have been tried and your computer still cannot see the hard drive, you may have a faulty hard drive, motherboard or power supply. Try using your hard drive in a different computer, if it still fails to be recognized, you'll need to replace your drive. If it is recognized, your motherboard or power supply may be at fault. Try a different power supply. If that doesn't work your motherboard may be the issue.

Best of luck.
