Question about Samsung Computers & Internet
The jumpers are just for if you have 2 on an old ide cable Is your other computer ide? if so are you adding this drive to the same cable as your main drive? If so jump the main as master and don't have a jumper on the failing unit. If you use a usb wire like i do it comes with its own power supply and requires no jumpers.

Tips for a great answer:
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
