Can't installed DVD to my ibook g4 PowerPC


The G4 PowerPC is not an Intel chip. The DVD you are trying to install is possibly for Windows / Intel chip motherboards, not PowerPC.

That said, the are tiny jumpers / connectors on the back of the DVD. If you are attaching the DVD to a cable that also has a hard drive attached, you probably need to move the jumper to the SL or slave position CS, or Cable Select does not work on a lot of older systems.

Most DVD's either stamp on the metal housing what the different jumper positions are, or else you will need to look at the instructions or find a PDF of the manual online.

All the best to you,

First, is the hard drive spinning and if so then, power the computer down and go to the hard drive and im assuming you have an older hard drive, if so make sure that the jumper settings are set to either master, or cable select (CS) this is an example of some settings http://i1.reclaime.com/jumpers.gif p.s it may be different for your drive and if in the future you need more than one drive just set the hard drive you boot from or have all you stuff in to master and the new one as slave or cable select

If its too difficult to understand don't be afraid to ask

Are you sure your BIOS is not showing the old hard-drive you had before you installed the new one?

On the new hard-drive you bought, do the following step

there should be a jumper that came with it, put the jumper to "master",
if that didn't work, put it to "slave", if that didn't show up, put it to "cable select" and try it.
If all failed, totally remove the jumper and try.
Also check in the BIOS to make sure that the Drive is not disabled.
This seems to be a problem from the jumper.

Please rate 4 stars if this helped you.

I need the book too know how too instal the jumperwho put the driver slave or master


hi

  • 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.
  • Step 2 To change the designation of a new drive to be a slave drive, skip to step 4.
  • Step 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.
  • Step 4 Check the hard drive documentation or the label on the drive itself for master/slave jumper settings.
  • Step 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).
  • Step 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.
  • Step 7 Install (or reinstall) the hard drive in the computer. (See "How to Install a Second Hard Drive.")

    How do i install a used hard drive into an eMachines T2341? The hard drive still has information on it. do i set it as master, slave, or cable select? hard drive is an IBM 10.1 gb


    There are two possible solutions depending on how your desktop is setup.
    #1 install the 2nd hard drive and put jumper to CABLE SELECT. When you start the computer it should now appear in the bios as a SLAVE or 2nd hard drive. If not go to #2 below
    #2 Turn system off again and change jumper on 2nd hard drive to SLAVE.
    Now when your computer restarts it will appear in your bios correctly as the 2nd drive/SLAVE.
    Do not make it "MASTER" or you will be trying to boot up to this drive and it may not work as you planned.

    FYI: "Cable Select" means the hard drive determines which one is Master and which one is Slave by where it is on the data cable.

    Good Luck

    Jumper off will set the drive to slave. If you can connect both drives to the same ribbon cable with the master on the end & the slave to the second connector. Look at your bios as win is booting up to see if shows the drive as slave, you will not be able to copy windows as a operating system off of the drive, but should be able to copy files.

    Good luck on your endevors.

    Installation of one touch mini 4


    hello, if you are adding an extra hard drive for space make sure to change the teeny jumper to the proper pins next to the connection slots on the hard drive. the jumper makes your hard drive work as a slave (extra drive) or a master (main drive). if you have a main drive allready on your comp and you dont switch the jumper the slave position the computer will not recognize it becuase of the new hard drives jumper being in the master position or pin connector.
    if your installing it as a 2nd master drive you need to use your extra hard drive slot on the mother board for this to work as a secound master then you need the jumper in the master pin slot. there is a small diagram on to the hard drive info label it looks like pins and it shows you where to locate or place the jumper for either master or slave.
    for a slave drive once you have placed the jumper properly then you can instal it on the same cable with the main. look at the cable it will have a main and a slave small label printon the connector or if you prefer you can use the 2nd hard drive cable on the secound slot on the mother board turn on your comp if you are going for a extra hard drive the comp should recognize it if the jumper is properly placed. when your comp is running you can check by going into (computer) and it should be there as a new drive letter

    after this you may need to format the drive for use. you right click on the hard drive letter and choose format drive

    hope this helps good luck with your upgrade.

    How do i configure my Barracuda7200.10 AS PRIMARY MASTER


    When more than one hard drive is installed on a computer system, each drive competes for control of the computer. To allow both drives to work in harmony on the same computer system, the controlling (or startup) drive is designated the master drive and the other drive is designated the slave drive. You can change this designation. The following procedure applies to any PC-compatible computer.
    Instructions Difficulty: Moderately Challenging Things You’ll Need: Step 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. Step 2To change the designation of a new drive to be a slave drive, skip to step 4. Step 3To 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. Step 4 Check the hard drive documentation or the label on the drive itself for master/slave jumper settings. Step 5Find 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).

    How to set hard drive jumpers


    a common hard drive jumper setting if its an ide sata, when you look behind the hard drive, you can see there are 4 places where you can set the jumpers...

    there is cable select which you dont havce to put any jumpers at all. there is slave to which you may put 1 jumper there. and there is also master which sometimes is a single drive. any indication should be seen there above the jumpers which is indicated as MA- master, SL- slave CS - cable select.

    hope this helps you in some way.
