Yes, you can use, Please see label attached to the harddrive for a jumper setting to become primary harddrive.

in the DVD rom there's also a label on it. but the most common setting is slave is in the center.

C S M -

c-cable select
s-Slave
M- Master
the jumper is set to center to become a slave.


the hard drive is should be a master

connecting to the other end of the IDE cable.

HDD-should be a master

SOURCE: computer doesn't see new secondary hard drive

I'll assume you're using windows xp, but in any case have you tried going to my computer>manage>disk management to see if it appears? If not, refer to pg 8 or pg 14 of this article to Install a hard drive. You may have to enter the bios (F1 at boot) to allow the new drive. Also see this link to your bios setup screens.
If you're still having problems after looking through this info and checking the bios setup, write back and we'll be happy to help sort it out...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

What do i need to install a WD Scorpio Blue 500Gb hard drive in my HP dv90052us laptop - i've got the drive but it does not fit in it's slot like the original drive does - i'm putting it in the second...


You may need a "caddy" -- a metal shell that wraps around the disk-drive, in order to line-up its "data" and "power" connectors with the matching "sockets" inside the second drive-bay.

Order the caddy from http://support.hp.com

Want to add 2nd cdrom


In order to burn from CD to CD you don’t need a second CD-ROM. Nero will save the CD image on the hard drive and then will ask you to put a blank CD and record the image from the hard drive to the CD.
To install a second CD-ROM use the same bus to the hard drive and set the jumper to “slave”. Good luck.
