Hello, I will be the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.
Welcome to Fixya, Peter Symonds.
Read the big label that the manufacture has put on your DVD drive, you need information regarding Master and Slave jumper positions.
You need to set the main DVD drive as Master and the other as a Slave or secondary drive. However some-times this configuration is set in the BIOS/CMOS of your computer system.
Install the drives by removing an available 5.25" plastic drive cover on the front of your PC tower case. Now secure the new DVD drive to the chassis with the included M3 mounting screws.
Use two screws on each side to ensure that the drive is secure.
Insert both the SATA power and Data connections into the drive and the SATA data connector into an available SATA connector on the mainboard.
Once completed power on your computer and enter the BIOS/CMOS by tapping the delete key as soon as your computer powers on.
Your will get to the BIOS/CMOS screen where you need to find the heading for Master and Slave drives. You should see your primary hard drive and both DVD drives.
Enter into the DVD drive settings and set the one to master and other to slave.
Save and exit setup, usually F10. Read options at the bottom of the BIOS/CMOS screen.
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to IDE-1 means Pri slave escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart you will have to have master with slave set up you can find the jumper location next to the power on a hard drive and the settings for plastic jumper location is usually printed on the top of a hard drive IDE-0 means Pri master IDE-1 means Pri slave IDE-2 means Sec master IDE-3 means Sec slave single or master ::::: master with slave ::':: slave :::': black line between dots is plastic jumper note the plastic jumper is ' located at the rear of the hard drive next to the IDE/SATA lead/s
CS means Cable Select .Parallel data cable have two conectors.If you set jumper set on CS ,in this way ,example,you have two HDD when you plug parallel data cable in middle connector ,1 Hard drive working like Master ,2 HDD work like slave,if you plug in last connector First HDD working like slave,second HDD Master.
on the back of the drive there should be a black, white or yellow jumper. If you look very carfully at the back of the harddrive where the jumper is, it will tell you which position you need to have the jumper in for slave and which position you need to have it in for master. If it is already in the master position, carefully pull it out then push it back into the correct position to act as slave. Some hardrives simpley have a M for master and a S for slave while other harddrive will actually have the words. I hope this helps.
