Question about Seagate Computers & Internet
Have this old HD I'm trying to use but don't know where to put jumper. Master ? will be only hard drive.
Isn't that shown on the hard disk ? Even old hard disks have some details about the jumpers on them.
Anyway, yes, it is master if it's the ony drive. Depending on the drive, it may or may not need the jumper for the master or single drive. No harm if you try connecting the drive without a jumper.
The most that will hapen is that the drive won't be recognized or at most, the pc won't boot. If that happens, try with the jumper. It won't harm either the computer or the disk.
