How do I slave a cd-rom drive in a dimension 1100


Most CD or DVD drives installed in modern computers have a group of short jumper pins on the rear of the drive that determine the master or slave setting for the device. The master or slave setting helps to identify the drive when it shares a connector cable inside the computer with another device, such as a hard drive or even another optical drive. Without the master or slave jumper setting, the computer would not be able to tell one device from another or from which drive to retrieve or write data. Configuring a CD drive as master or slave is a relatively simple task that takes only a couple of minutes.
Turn the CD drive so that you view the rear of the unit, then check the position of the jumper covers on the set of pins next to the power adapter plug. If the CD drive will be the only device on the IDE data ribbon cable, set the jumper cover on the two pins farthest away from the power connector. This position is the master drive setting, and, by default, most CD drives ship with this configuration. In most cases, if the CD drive is the only device connected to the cable, you do not need to change the jumper setting. Determine if you need to change the CD drive jumper setting if the device will share a connector cable with a hard drive or another optical drive. If the CD drive will be the primary (master) device on the cable, do not change the jumper setting. If the CD drive will be the secondary (slave) device on the cable, continue to the next step to change the setting. Use a pair of needle-nosed pliers or your fingers to remove the jumper cover from the CD drive if the unit will be the secondary device on the IDE ribbon cable. Set the cover over the pair of pins next the pair from which you removed it, then press it until it completely covers the pins. The jumper is now in the slave setting position.

Don't know how to set jumpers for master and slave


These jumpers you're referring to normally are spoken of when dealing with a CD/DVD Drive or a hard drive. Usually it's an older one too. They look like this...

You'll need to look on the device itself. There it will have labeled which pin set is for slave or master. Just move the jumper to the correct pins.

When two drives are connecting cd or dvd it detects only one.


If they are IDE drives, then you need to set the jumpers on the rear of the drives. You should set one to master and the other to slave.

I NEED HELP HOOKING UP MY WESTERN DIGIAL WD5000G032


If this drive is only for storage it can be set as a slave drive. If it will have the OS installed and will be the boot drive it has to be set as master. Set the jumpers accordingly. If a different drive is the master you might check the jumpers on that also. I have seen some drives with a (master/slave present) jumper that might need to be changed as well. Most WD drives have a jumper settings diagram on the case.

Im looking for the jumper settings on a compaq motherboared. its a presario 7478


hello CAVdesert,
I don't think you ever have to change the jumper settings on the motherboard.You may need to change in few cases but otherwise, changing motherboard jumper settings is not recommended.
However, if you need to configure the jumper settings for your Hard Drive, CD/DVD Drive etc, Please refer to the following document.

My Dell PC will not recognise my Samsung CDRW drive. Have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers but the install fails.


Does the drive appear in the BIOS ? If not recognized there, Windows won't see it. Do you have more than one DC or DVD drive? If so make sure the jumpers are set cs on both or master on one and slave on the other. The jumpers are on the back by the power and flat cable connections.
