Trying to connect a second DVD burner with the old style cable. I already have a second HD on the cable. The system will recongnize one or the other device....but not both at the same time. Why? Any ideas?

Hi Daniel
The problem is that you will have to configure one of the drives as Master and the other one as Slave .
Check both the DVD and the hard drive .Near the IDE cable it should be another connector where you can see these letters on the DVD`s case Ma Sl and Cs .It is a 3 X 2 pins connector .)
The hard drive should have these letters written on the label .
Set Hard drive as Master ( usually it is Master ) and set your DVD as Slave .Put the HDD on the first IDE connector on the cable and the DVD on the second

Change HDD

As long as you have the XP Home key Sticker it will work on either HDD

if it is a laptop you will have to save your pics etc... to an external HDD or Flash or CD DVD in order to reinstall on the new HDD as it will have to be formatted to NTFS and will erase anything on it
........................if it is a desktop you can make the new drive the Master install the operating syatem and then make the old drive a Slave by moving the jumpers on the hard drives to ....(.BOTH to >>>CS Cable Select .....)

or Master on new drive....and Slave on the old drive...........

Try both on CS first .....On the cable from the motherboard you will put the master (New HDD) on the plug that you take out of the original hard drive and the second plug on the cable goes to the old hard drive to make it a slave............If you change the jumpers the position of the Hard Disks does not matter......Your choice Good Luck

Need master slave configuration


You should have a jumper configuration written somewhere on the front (up) side of the hard Disk ... Look there, or look just around the Pins... Look for M, S, CS (Master, Slave, Cable Select)

I have a western digital (WD1600BB) harddrive that i want to install into my pc so it replaces my 17.2gb one that i have at the moment. I have a windows XP disc, but everytime i hook it up to my computer...

OK... Either your PC uses CS (Cable Select) or MS (Master/Slave) designation to ID drives found on the internal cablesets. Find yours for the 160gb here:

OK, you can't mix types, and you cant put 2 Masters or 2 Slaves on the same cable. Soooooooo

You need to find out what the current HDD uses... so pull the current HDD out, turn it so that you are looking at the backside (where the cable and power plugs in) and look for a group of 6, 8 or 10 tiny pins in a row ( Jumpers)

moz-screenshot.jpgLook where the Plastic pin(s) are if any and then look on the BACK, Top, PCB and Rear cover for the diagram that explains the position of each.

If your current Drive is CS, then just set your new drive to CS and plug it in (on the same cable)
If your current drive is all alone on the cable and there is a free connector hanging loose, it is most likely set to SINGLE MASTER, and will have to be changed to DUAL MASTER... then set your new drive on DUAL SLAVE and plug it in (on the same cable)

If your current drive is NOT all alone on the cable and there is CDROM attached to it too, it is most likely set to SINGLE MASTER, andyou will leave it alone and you will set your new HDD to SINGLE MASTER as well, and put it on the OTHER cable.

You may have to alter your BIOS settings to see the new 160Gb HDD IF your motherboard is capable of handling that size. Press F2 or DEL or Cntl-S or F12 during boot to get there, then make your changes, save and get out

Once you can SEE both HDD in your system, then you either use a program like GHOST and do a bit-by-bit copy of the old HDD to the NEW, and then make IT MASTER and the OLD one SLAVE (and reset BIOS settings to reflect this) or just leave it in there as 2nd BIG HDD with lots of space.

Good luck

Find yours for the 160gb here:

I installed an additional hard drive in my laptop. The computer will no longer boot up. I've read the the BIOS needs to be changed by I don't know how.

Please tell me which Motherboard your system has???
If you have added an additional drive, check whether you have set the jumpers right for master/slave/cable select configuration.

If you bios setup to boot up from first HDD, then the bootable HDD shall be in master mode. Configure bootable HDD as master & additional one as slave.

If still no luck, Put this additional HDD on other IDE slot.
Tell me if this works...

How do you set a samsung ide hd to master mode

To set a Hard Disk to master mode is quite simple. On the side of the Hard Disk that has the power hook-up and data hook-up, there is also a small section of usually about 8 little prongs, and you'll see something that looks like somebody stuck something on those prongs. It is called a jumper, and it can put the hard disk in various states such as Master, Slave, Cable Select, and more. You usually cant use a hard drive without a jumper, so don't lose it. On either the top or bottom of the HD, there should be various information about the HD. You should also see a diagram of about 8 squares, just like the 8 prongs next to the power and data connections on the HD. Find the one for Single or Master, switch the jumper to the position it tells you to, and you'll be all set!
