Repair broken


Easy, just hook up old drive as secondary and new drive as primary. Copy what you need from the secondary onto the primary. When you are done, just disconnect the secondary drive and enjoy your new one.

NEED JUMPER SETTINGS FOR MASTER HARD DRIVE


Set The Jumper Setting On Your Hard Disk Drive

The hard disk drive will be detected as 32 GB if the jumper is set to the 32 GB clip pin setting. The common jumper settings for Samsung hard disk drives are listed below. Please check the label on your hard disk drive for the correct jumper setting.

Important: Use the alternate jumper setting listed below under General Pin Setting. After changing the jumper, partition and format your hard disk drive.

Configuring your Hard Disk Drive (Master, Slave, or Cable Select) - Setting the Jumper

If this is the only HDD in your computer, set the pin setting to Master.
If this is the second HDD in your computer, set the pin setting to Slave.
If this is the second HDD in your computer, and the first drive is set to Cable Select, set the pin setting to Cable Select.
If you are replacing the HDD in your computer, set the jumper setting to match that of the drive you are replacing.

Cable Select:

This setting is the default setting for PATA/IDE hard disk drives. With the Cable Select jumper setting, the BIOS determines whether a hard disk drive is Set as Master or Set as Slave by it's position on the UDMA cable.
If the hard disk drive jumper is set to Cable Select and is connected to the black connector on the end of the UDMA cable, it is recognized as Set as Master for that PATA controller.
If the hard disk drive jumper is set to Cable Select and is connected to the grey connector on the middle of the UDMA cable, it is recognized as Set as Slave for that PATA controller.

Note: When using Cable Select, your system must meet the following conditions:
Your systems host controller must support Cable Select.
Your hard drives must support Cable Select.
Your cable must support Cable Select.

Set as Master:

Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable with a hard disk drive Set as Slave, jumper one hard disk drive to Set as Master, and the other to Set as Slave.
Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable and the Cable Select setting is not recognized.

Set as Slave:

Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable with a hard disk drive Set as Master, jumper one hard disk drive to Set as Master, and the other to Set as Slave.
Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable and the Cable Select setting is not recognized.

32 GB Clip Pin Setting:

Use this on computers manufactured before November 1998 when either you start up your computer and see the message, "Hard disk drive controller failure", or your system stops responding during the boot process after installing a new drive. This occurs when the hard disk drive is too large for the BIOS to support.

If after performing the troubleshooting procedure listed above, the full capacity of your hard disk drive is not recognized, click here for information about obtaining a system BIOS update. If you are unable to update your BIOS, another option would be to create a second partition with the remaining unallocated disk space.

My 2 tb wd hard drive comes on, but the computer doesn't show it's hooked up. I've unplugged the usb and tried 3 ports and still nothing. Any assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated


If the hard drive came with a disc that disc probably has a driver for your new hard drive, if not go to the manufacture's website here (http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?level1=3&lang=en) and look your hard drive and download its specific driver.

I have a r710dell server. It has two 146GB 15K RPM Serial-Attach SCSI 3Gbps 3.5in Hotplug Hard Drives. It seems like only one is being read. Because the C:\ is only 136GB. What could be the issue?


The two drives could be "mirrored" -- everything written onto one drive is also identically written onto the other drive. Thus, if one of the "set" of mirrored drives failed, you just remove the "dead" drive, insert a new drive, and tell it to "rebuild" the "set" of mirrored drives, i.e., it copies everything from the "good" drive onto the "new" drive, and then the "mirroring" will continue.

How do you connect two hard drives to a computer?


1. For SATA, you just need a second SATA cable to plug it in and a power cable from the power supply.
2. For IDE, you will need a second IDE cable to plug the second hard drive, AND you will have to set both hard drives jumpers either to cable select or one Master and the other one Slave, based on which one you have the operating system.

Slave jumper settings for a 2.5 Hitachi DK23DA-20F hard drive


Most hard drives I've come across have tiny little letters on the PCB next to the jumpers that say MA SL CS which are for master, slave, and cable select. If that doesn't work, go to Hitachi's website and search their support section. There is a diagram of the jumpers for that drive out there somewhere. Good luck!
