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.

I have a Western Digital WD1600AAJS drive. It was on a PC, got hit hard by malware. Need to copy off some critical directories from it. Plugged into another machine. Other machine will not fully boot with...


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 ?


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

How the jumper setting is done for maxtor n256j50


If this is an IDE/PATA hard drive then the jumper settings are marked on the circuit board.
MA = master
SL = slave
CS = cable select
If this hard drive is the one installed on the Primary IDE controller the the jumper has to be set to Master. If it won't boot up then the jumper needs to be set to Cable select.

If this hard drive is a second hard drive and is connected to the 2nd connector on the IDE data cable that is connected to the primary IDE controller then the jumper must be set to Slave.

If this hard drive is a second hard drive and is connected to the secondary IDE controller and there is no other drive on the IDE data cable other than this hard disk the the jumper can be set to either Master or Slave.
If there is a CD drive on this cable too then the drives on this data cable then the jumpers on each drive must be set differently, they cannot be set the same jumper setting.

http://www.lyberty.com/tech/hard_drives/WD_Caviar_WD400BB_specs/index.html

Above is the link to set the jumper on the 40GB to Slave.
Also, before it boots, try to get into the BIOS setting and make sure your compter can see both drives. If not, double check jumper settings for both drives. Turn off compter and change settings.

When computer can see both drives in BIOS, save it and let the compter continue to boot.

Hope this helps.

How to solve boot failture.


Boot failure will be displayed if the computer cannot find the operating system on a bootable device.
Your hard drive could be defective or the computer bios is not setup to locate the drive due to lost information from a possible dead backup battery or a power surge. To resolve the problem you need to find out what type of hard drive you have for example MFM, RLL, SCSI, IDE, ATA, PATA, Enhanced IDE or SATA. With a SATA drive, you do not have to worry about jumper settings, which are the newest of the hard drive interfaces. You need to start your computer and read the system prompts to enter the set up bios (example: Press Del to enter System Bios). Once you are in the system bios you need to select boot devices. Make sure the drive with your operating system is selected in the boot devices. If this will not work then you may need to reinstall the Operating System. I would buy a new drive if you can afford it and install the operating on the new drive so you may be able to recover some of the data. If you do not care about the data you can reinstall the Operating System on the current drive. If your drive is not recognized during the installation then the drive is most likely bad. If you reinstall the Operating System on the new drive then you can install the current drive as a second drive to recover previous data. If you do not have a SATA drive you will need to change the jumper settings to operate as a slave drive. If the data from the old drive is not accessible when install with the correct jumper setting then the drive will need to be repaired or discarded.

Where can i purchase the product to get data from hard drive


Hi, you don't say if it's presently in a PC or stand alone? If it's not in a PC, put into one as a secondary drive. Make sure the jumper is set to 'slave'.

http://askbobrankin.com/add_a_second_hard_drive.html

The above link is information.
If you have the hard drive is installed in the computer, and the operating system has failed, try and boot into safe mode and retrieve data that way.
If this is not possible, use a linux live disk and see if you can retrieve data that way. For information about this, follow the next link;

How to install hitachi cdr-7930 on my dell dimension 4100 window xp home edition it doesent computer fails to boot with it hooked up


If this is a IDE drive...You may have the data cable connected the wrong way around. Do you only have one hard drive installed..? If you have and you are connecting this drive on the same data cable as your hard drive, you need to set the hard drive to "slave present" or "Master" and the dvd drive to "slave" If this is a SATA drive, you do not need to do this and you may have a faulty drive.. On the rear panel of the drives (where the cables plug in) is a jumper pin. Now either marked on the case or even on the drive label are the meaning of these pins. There are usually four sets of two pins laid out vertically. You need to put the little black jumper onto the pins marked "slave" on the dvd drive and "slave present" or "Master" on the hard drive if they are both on the same data cable. you can also set both drives to "cable select" but you then have to use the correct connector on the data cable for each drive. try the slave and master settings first, if you have no luck, message me again..

Hard Drive Installation


Hi emceedrive, I gather you are using ATA/PATA IDE hard disk drives? Each hard disk drive has a large white sticker on it. Listed there are pin settings to set the IDE to Master or slave & Master with a slave. (We want to leave you're drive with windows on it alone). Not changing its jumper or not adding a jumper for now. We are not hooking up you're second drive just yet either.
Oh, please you're not an idiot either.
Unplug the power cable from the PC & open you're case.
Please open you're ASUS P4P800 SE manual to section 2.2.3 Motherboard layout. We want to connect the data cable to SEC_IDE1 first because once PRI_IDE1 is connected you will not be able to connect SEC_IDE1's data cable up to the DVD drive bay.
So grab a data cable for you DVD drive. It may have three connectors on it. Plug the connector that is the furthest from the other 2 connectors on the cable into the motherboard slot named SEC_IDE2. The data cable only goes in one way. Run the remainder of the cable up to the DVD player but do not connect it to the player yet. It is ok to fold the data cable which will help in routing it upwards to the DVD bay. Than connect the data cable to you're primary master IDE drive. (The one with windows already installed on it). The data cable should look just like the DVD data cable. Again you want to connect the furthest connector on the data cable into the MB slot named PRI_IDE1.
For now it’s best not to install the drive into the drive bay. Stand it up next to your case or lay it down flat with a sheet of paper under it. Connect the power cable to the drive. Plug in the PC's power cord & power up the PC & start pressing the delete key every two seconds until the bios main menu loads. You should see the Primary Hard disk drive listed at the main menu. Now go to the title Boot in the bios. Open boot order. The boot order of the devices should be as follows.
Boot device 1. (Floppy Disk Drive)
Boot device 2. (DVD Disk Drive) [None shown it’s not connected to the system].
Boot device 3. (Model number of your Primary IDE Master HDD).
Once this is set, save the bios & exit. The system should auto restart & windows should load. Let windows finish loading. Than shut down windows normally.
Unplug the PC's power cord. Since you had to remove a DVD drive you'll need to set the remaining DVD player's jumper on the drive to a Master & connect the data cable & power cord to it. (You may have to remove the DVD to see where the Master pins are located. It will be marked on the DVD player near the pins).
Now take you're new drive, do not insert it into the drive bay. Look at you're Master drive's white label. Set the jumper on the master drive first. It should be set as a Master drive with a slave.
Connect a jumper for this.
Go to you're new drive. Again look at its white label. Set this drive's jumper as a Slave drive. The Master drive should be connected to the end of the data cable. The new slave drive should be connected to the next in line connector.
Once all data cables & power cables are connected plug in the PC's power cord & boot the system, again pressing the delete key every two seconds until the boot main menu loads. Now you should see the Primary IDE Master drive & you're new Primary IDE Slave drive listed. You should also see the DVD as the Secondary IDE Master. Go to the title "Boot" again. Set the boot order as mentioned above. Save & exit the bios. Windows should load as it did before. Once windows has finished loading open windows Explorer & see if you're new slave drive is listed.
Shut down the system & unplug the power cord. Unplug the slave drive & mount it into its drive bay. Take a black marker & mark the side of the drive as slave. Disconnect the Master drive & connect it into its drive bay. Reconnect the data cables & power cables. Check all connectors before closing the case up. Re-connect the PC's power cord & boot the system. Everything should be fine. If you have a problem getting the data cable connected to the slave drive because its closer to the DVD drive as opposed to the Primary IDE Master drive you can make the slave drive a Secondary IDE Master (Change its jumper setting according to the drive’s label for Master with a slave) & connect the DVD player as a Secondary IDE Slave. (Change its jumper to slave). Change the Primary IDE Master drive’s jumper as a Master with no slave, single drive. That all.

Good luck emceedrive!
Take your time. Any troubles please post here.
You should be fine though.
Mike
