The drive you have is a SATA drive, and has no master/slave configuration as such.  There is a connector block on the back to configure other options such as spread spectrum clocking.  Normal configuration is a jumper between pins 1 and 2 (all the way on the right side, facing the back).  A picture of the other configuration options is shown below.
Hope this helps you out,

How do i configure this hard drive for a 'slave' ?


Ok, you ill be able to see the jumper configuration on the hard drive itself. Here is an example on what the jumper diagram will look like on a hard drive.

Now, all you need to do is to have a look on your hard dive and see where you need to place the jumper for the slave configuration. Here is what a jumper looks like.


After you have done this, you only need to plug the hard drive into your pc.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

My mb Asus K8N cant start using HDD WesternDigital WD3200AAJS

Unplug your computer.
On the end of the disk-drive, there is three-by-two grid of gold pins, labelled MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect). Move the jumper to the 'CS' position.

Start your computer.
Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP.
Use "auto detect IDE drives", and the 160GB drive should be recognized.

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)

Master slave jumper settings on 250gb Maxline Plus II SATA

There are no master/slave settings on SATA drives because each drive has its own cable. The drive order is determined by what SATA port they are plugged into, or by the BIOS configuration.
