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.

Wd1600aajs slave settings


Hard Drive a Slave Drive Setting a hard drive to function as the secondary ("slave") drive allows you to use the drive solely as a storage unit. You can use the drive to back up valuable data on the primary drive without having to install or use an operating system on it. And all you need to get going is a screwdriver to pop the case open.

Power down your computer. WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Disconnect all of the cables and then put the computer on a stable work surface such as a desk or a chair. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws securing the side paneling of the case. The screws are located at the back of the computer and along the edges--only remove the screws securing the case. Unhinge any case latches on the computer. Slide the side paneling of the case off the computer. Some case designs require you to remove the whole case, and some are broken down into removable panels. Remove enough of the case to have both sides of the computer exposed. Discharge any static that may have accumulated on your clothing before handling any internal components. Rub your hands against a solid metal portion of the case to discharge the static. Locate the hard drive. It should be secured in a station of bays adjacent to the motherboard--it'll also be near your DVD/CD-ROM and floppy disk drives. Remove the screws that secure the hard drive to the bay. Slowly slide the drive out of the bay. The drive will be connected to a data and power cable. You can temporarily disconnect them to take the drive out completely and give yourself more room to work with--but remember to reconnect them. Locate the jumper pins on the hard drive. There will be a diagram displaying the proper jumper settings for a given hard drive mode. Follow the diagram and set the pin cap in its slave position on the hard drive--for example, some drives may require the cap to be placed on the last two pins to set the drive as a slave.
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 IDE-1 means Pri slave escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart you will have to have master with slave set up you can find the jumper location next to the power on a hard drive and the settings for plastic jumper location is usually printed on the top of a hard drive IDE-0 means Pri master
IDE-1 means Pri slave
IDE-2 means Sec master
IDE-3 means Sec slave single or master ::::: master with slave ::':: slave :::': black line between dots is plastic jumper note the plastic jumper is ' located at the rear of the hard drive between the EIDE and electrical lead/s clip_image001.jpg Set Up a Slave Drive b> In a computer system, a master/slave relationship establishes the primary and secondary hard disk or optical drive status. Many computer owners install operating systems on the primary or master hard disk and use the secondary or slave disk as a storage drive for games or multimedia. Master/slave or primary/secondary relationships exist only with IDE or ATA drives. SATA, a newer drive technology, is a jumperless system and does not allow for master/slave settings, which makes SATA drives easier to install.

Shut down your computer. Unplug all cables and peripheral devices. Remove the left side panel while facing the front of the case. Remove screws, manipulate latches or perform other necessary steps to remove the panel. (Please see your computer or case manufacturer's documentation if you are unsure of how to remove the side panel, as this process varies.) Turn the case so that you are facing the open, previously left side of the case. Locate your drive bays. The 5.25-inch optical bays are at the top right and the 3.5-inch hard disk bays are towards the bottom right. You should be able to locate the necessary bay easily by matching your slave drive with the master drive. Clip the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and attach the bracelet to your wrist. Remove the drive from its anti-static packaging. Locate the pins on the back of the hard disk or optical drive. Jumper configurations vary according to model and manufacturer, and most manufacturers show the configurations on the drive itself. Configure the jumper according to the hard disk manufacturer's instructions. Insert the hard disk or optical drive into the appropriate bay. Secure it by screwing in at least two mounting screws. Attach an available controller cable to your drive. Most controller cables feature a Y-split cable, which makes it easy to find and attach the secondary cable that links to your primary drive. Insert the power supply cable into the port on the drive. Again, you may be able to plug in a secondary cable split from the power supply's cable to the master drive. Double-check all connections. Remove the anti-static wrist bracelet, then reattach all cables and peripheral devices. b> Configure the BIOS b> Start the computer. Enter your BIOS by immediately pressing the BIOS setup key, as shown onscreen. (Most computers feature a "Press X to enter BIOS setup" message after you hear the computer beep. Press this key. If you do not see this message, please consult your computer's documentation, as the BIOS key varies according to your motherboard.) Navigate to system setup and allow the BIOS to auto-detect the new drive. Save and exit the BIOS. Reattach the side panel if the drive is working correctly. Hope this helps.

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...

Need IDE jumber settings.


There is a little jumper block on the rear of a DVD. by IDE connector. on the case above there will be a Table marked . Master: Slave: CS. Now, you must set the jumper as to your drive's position. IE: Master or Slave, Master is on the plug at the END of the ribbon, the Slave is on the "Other" one. Accordingly the Master has the Master Jumper ON, the Slave the Slave Jumper ON. CS is Cable Select. It isn't all that used.

Pin connection for 'master ..slave


I assume these are IDE drives since SATA doesn't require jumper settings. . .You will need to set the primary drive jumper to master[ma] & the secondary drive jumper to slave[sl]. Some systems require dual hdd systems to have both set to the cable select[cs] jumper. Check your motherboard or system manufacturer manual to see which setup your system requires. If you lost the manual most manufacturers have it availablr on their website under the support link. Hope this helps.

2 primary ides 2 secondary ides


Ok.... The Primary IDE Should be configured so that your Primary Hard Drive is Set To Master (the jumper pins must be set to the same, each drive has a guide on top or back, or it's written above or below the jumper pins on the back of the drive.

Primary = Hard Disk 0 (Your Main Hard Drive)...This one is to be set as Master and plugged to the END of the IDE Cable....Another Hard Disk / Drive can be connected as Slave (sometimes Cable Select Will Work depending on the motherboard). Remember The Jumper pins on the Drives!

Secondary= One drive must be set as Master, The other as Slave.

That Should do it.

Go into your bios setup screen, go to the boot configuration and set it up so that your boot order goes as follows:
1. Floppy Disc Drive
or........
1. Optical Drive (cd or dvd)
2. Hard Disc 0 (this will be named whatever your Hard drive model number is)
3. Hard Disc 1 (this is the second hard drive, if you want it to be bootable, it's your choice, if not, then set it up to boot off your secondary optical drive,

Make Sure that under IDE devices menu, everything is detected correctly.
Now Save Settings and Exit.

That should do it

Can not find Jumper diagram on N256 Maxtor model 33073H3


Hello there soggytundra, here's your GEEK-steer ...

Despite your question being posted here 5 days ago, I'll presume you still (and if not, then someone else will) need the answer ...

Virtually all Maxtor drives adhere to the following general rules concerning jumper settings (at least up until now):

= MASTER (M): Insert jumper over the FIRST COMPLETE pair of VERTICAL pins.

Examples:
Xoo o oXooo Xooo
Xoooo Xooo Xooo

= CABE SELECT (CS): Insert jumper over the SECOND COMPLETE pair of VERTICAL pins.

Examples:
oXo o oXooo oXoo
oXooo Xooo oXoo

= SLAVE (S): Do NOT insert ANY jumpers (or at least NONE VERTICALLY, but you may HORIZONTALLY across the TOP row as simply a means of storing the jumper).

Examples:
ooo o ooooo oooo oooXX oooXX ooXX
ooooo oooo oooo ooooo oooo oooo

TIP: As a general rule, if you KNOW the role of the jumper capable device you're installing, it is better to NOT use Cable Select (CS). In this case you do, therefore it would be best to specifically designate the (33073H3) drive as (secondary) Slave [and your other (primary) drive as Master].

Good luck and GOD-speed. Please post back if you have any further questions, and/or just to let me (and others in similar need) know how well this steers to solution.

Installation of one touch mini 4


hello, if you are adding an extra hard drive for space make sure to change the teeny jumper to the proper pins next to the connection slots on the hard drive. the jumper makes your hard drive work as a slave (extra drive) or a master (main drive). if you have a main drive allready on your comp and you dont switch the jumper the slave position the computer will not recognize it becuase of the new hard drives jumper being in the master position or pin connector.
if your installing it as a 2nd master drive you need to use your extra hard drive slot on the mother board for this to work as a secound master then you need the jumper in the master pin slot. there is a small diagram on to the hard drive info label it looks like pins and it shows you where to locate or place the jumper for either master or slave.
for a slave drive once you have placed the jumper properly then you can instal it on the same cable with the main. look at the cable it will have a main and a slave small label printon the connector or if you prefer you can use the 2nd hard drive cable on the secound slot on the mother board turn on your comp if you are going for a extra hard drive the comp should recognize it if the jumper is properly placed. when your comp is running you can check by going into (computer) and it should be there as a new drive letter

after this you may need to format the drive for use. you right click on the hard drive letter and choose format drive

hope this helps good luck with your upgrade.
