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.

HTH,

Trying to connect a second DVD burner with the old style cable. I already have a second HD on the cable. The system will recongnize one or the other device....but not both at the same time. Why? Any ideas?


Hi Daniel
The problem is that you will have to configure one of the drives as Master and the other one as Slave .
Check both the DVD and the hard drive .Near the IDE cable it should be another connector where you can see these letters on the DVD`s case Ma Sl and Cs .It is a 3 X 2 pins connector .)
The hard drive should have these letters written on the label .
Set Hard drive as Master ( usually it is Master ) and set your DVD as Slave .Put the HDD on the first IDE connector on the cable and the DVD on the second

MY COMPUTER KEEP SHOW NEW HARDWARE NOT FOUND


you may have not properly set the jumpers on your new installed hard drive.

usually a computer will have 2 eide drive controllers where you would connect a ribbon cable. a ribbon cable has a middle connector and end connector and obviously another end connector that connects to the motherboard)
now you can connect upto to devices to that ribbon cable. most computers will have one device connected to the end connector (the hard drive) and no devices connected to the middle connector or sometimes they may have 2 device on the same cable: the hard drive on the end and a cd/dvd drive on the middle. others computers may have one ribbon cable for each device as computers usually come with 2 drive controllers (so you can connect 2 cables which means a total of upto 4 eide devices)

now, when you connect devices on 1 ribbon cable, the end device is the master device, the one the middle is the slave. to make a device a master or a slave you need to set a jumper. the jumper is usually located in between the ribbon cable connector and the power connector, the legend to know where the jumper goes to make it a slave or a master is usually on the label of the hard drive. you may need to check that label and with some pliers make the proper setting for that jumper.

on a new hd usually the jumper setting will be in master. so if you connected the hard drive on a ribbon cable that already has a master at the end it may not be detected. try to connect that master device on another ribbon cable that has no other devices connected and connect it on the end connector (not the middle one). if you have no other option but to connect it in the middle already having a master device at the end, set the jumper to on the slave position.

while you are at it. make sure you have your power connector and data (ribbon) cable properly seated.

if the caviar hd your are trying to install is an old hd and you know that you have the proper hd configuration and the cables properly seated, it is possible that no detection means hd failure.

New larger hard drive can only be detected as Primary Slave


Floydage, some ribbons are different in the orentation of pin#1. try a differnent cable...but you said that you tried that right.? have you tried to make sure you have the latist BIOS. It could be this paticuler drive have a different bios it self...and yes drive's do have chip's and software in them. If nothing ells just load the OS to that drive anyway and than change the drive letters in windows.

I am installing a new WD3200AAJB HD in a Dell Dimension 4550. This is the only HD in the system. There are also 2 CD drives and a floppy drive. I used the jumper settings the drive came with which pins...


Reinstall your old hard drive as master and install the new hard drive as slave.

Here is the link to jumper settings from Westrn Digital;

http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1540&p_created=#jumper

If you've got your jumper settings wrong and installed your os on the 127 GB section of the 320 GB Hard drive and you change jumper settings and then you have problems you may need to reinstall the old hard drive as master and the new hard drive as slave. Reformat the new hard drive as 320 GB, and as a bootable drive. You can either do a disk copy from old to new or reinstall your os on the 320 GB drive. Please let me know how this goes.

Quantum Fireball lct 30gig not recognized in Dell Dimension 3000


Turns out this particular drive needs TWO jumpers on it, to set it to CS. I received it used with a single jumper in the Master position, but after checking the Maxtor/Quantum website, it listed the jumper positions and showed the second jumper. As soon as I installed the TWO jumpers in the correct position, the Dimension 3000 booted right up and let me reinstall Windows. I had scoured the internet for many hours looking for a solution, none solved it until I decided to check the manufacturers website. Always start there!- Solved!

Diamond max 20 hard drive won't install - jumper problems - want as slave, my old one as master


on the back of the drive there should be a black, white or yellow jumper. If you look very carfully at the back of the harddrive where the jumper is, it will tell you which position you need to have the jumper in for slave and which position you need to have it in for master. If it is already in the master position, carefully pull it out then push it back into the correct position to act as slave. Some hardrives simpley have a M for master and a S for slave while other harddrive will actually have the words. I hope this helps.
