You need the system info for the laptop you are using to see if a 2nd hdd needs to be set as slave or set in the cable select mode. Either right above the jumper pins or on the top of the hdd above the pins you should see 3 groups of 2 pins. They will be marked, ma, cs, & sl. They may not be in this order as each hdd manufacturer is different but all will have those 3 markings. If you set as slave cover the 2 jumper pins marked sl. For cable select cover the 2 pins marked cs. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

SOURCE: Strapping or Jumpering for slave
Best bet is buy an external enclosure to pur the extra hard drive in. Easiest solution. Cost about $39-$49 at electronics store.
Hope this helps!
