Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
Drive manufacturer provide two options to define the Master/Slave status by the positioning of jumpers between the drives data and power cables. The commonest is one pair of pins will define Master or Slave but a second wil be for cable select. Dell PCs only support Cable Select so make sure the only jumper is on the CS pair and the drive is on the Grey end plug (not middle which is black). If all you are doing is replacing an existing drive this should work.
