Look at the chart printed on the drive itself. If there is no chart, post what drive model it is and whether you want master or slave position. You do have an IDE drive, don't you?

Western digital wd2500bevt slave jumper settings


SATA drive position is determined by the plug on the motherboard, not a jumper. Jumper settings are for PATA drives (much older).

How to set up jumpers when adding harddrive on master and slave


Master/Slave designation is determined by jumpers on IDE drives. Most drives have adequate markings on them to identify these jumper positions. If not marked clearly, you will need the manufacturer's data to determine that designation.
If you are curious about a working system just power-up in set-up mode (usually by depressing (f1-or-f2) during boot-up sequence, your system-bios will display this information for you.
Jumpers for a PC hard drive are next to the power connector. Mostly in between the power connector and the data cable connector. These are used for setting up Master/Slave settings and also to limit capacity of the HDD seen by PC BIOS on some older hard disks. Usually settings which are selected by jumper setting to various locations are printed on the hard disk information sticker.
hope this helps

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?
IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?

Want to install wd1200jb-75cra0 as slave drive in dell xps420 with vista operating system operating master drive. do i need a driver installed first before it will recognize the wd1200 as a slave?.


there is a jumper setting on the drive itself that determines master and slave. Look closely at it, there is always a diagram of the pins to connect or disconnect for master slave setup.

No longer needed with Sata drives...

What is the jumper pin placement to make a slave of a DiamondMax Plus 9, 80GB hard drive?


The manual is linked below and section 3.3.1 covers jumper settings.
The slave setting shows the park position so you have a jumper on the drive so you can reconfigure it later.

A quick answer is that the slave setting is no jumper at all on the jumper pins.

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

What are the jumper pins on my Maxtor 6l200m0 and 6l200s0 sata drives for?


To control how the computer separates and assigns the drive's working order and placement.

The most basic positions are:

Master - By default the motherboard will boot to this drive first, therefore it's the "master"

Slave- What it sounds like. It's under the "Master" and isn't booted by default.

Cable Select (CS) - What it sounds like as well. The cable that goes from the motherboard to the hard drives. There are TWO positions at which the cable connects to the drives based on their placement. That placement determines which drive is master and which is slave. The advantage of this mode is it's ease of use. (Use only when you've got two hard drives)

That's the basics of the basics. There is A LOT more to those jumpers...but you won't ever need to know what so don't ask ;)

Let me know if you have any other questions.
