    It is an external HDD.

    This product is an empty case that you put an ordinary HDD into to make an external HDD. My computer wont recognise it and I thought the problem may be the jumper settings.

    You mention USB 2 in the title, is this an external drive?

No Jumper Settings are required for external drives, they are all setup as Slave by default, and if you try to open the case, to take the drive out and change the Jumper Settings, you will invalidate the warranty.

    Well, that's a whole different issue. The correct answer to "is this an external drive?" would be, "No, it's an internal hard drive that I am placing into an empty casing for external use."

Boot failure


The jumpers are just for if you have 2 on an old ide cable Is your other computer ide? if so are you adding this drive to the same cable as your main drive? If so jump the main as master and don't have a jumper on the failing unit. If you use a usb wire like i do it comes with its own power supply and requires no jumpers.

I have 2 Hitachi 3 TB External USB Drive External Hard Disks that are not recognized by my Mac OS X 10.6.8. Have I bought the wrong ones?


have you formated your hard drives? are your black or white jumpers hooked to the pins on top of hard drive? if the hard drives are new chances are the jumpers are still in small plastic package.the jumpers are little peaces of plastic with two holes with metal in them. the jumpers go on were it says master if you are using 2 hard drives .the other hard drive the jumper goes were it says slave. if you are using 1 hard drive you put the jumper on cs.

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.")

F7 hard drive problem the PC has two 360 gig hard drives. Which one is the primary? Will a WD serial # WCAV 5463220018 3.5 inch SATA hard drive 1000 Gbyte be compatible with my PC?


If your PC has SATA connections yes you can use SATA, but not a SATA 2.5 which only fits a laptop! When you use 2 drives one must be set by jumpers on rear of drive to master..... the slave drive (2nd hard drive) must also be set to slave by same jumpers.

I think you have to donwload free software called recuva. this is the site:http://www.soft82.com/download/windows/recuva/
If you are prompted the files being stored just check its location. But you need a deep scan if you are to choose as asked by the wizard.
