Re: hard drive

Some hard drives will only work as a single device when jumper-ed as "stand-alone", try finding this option or alternatively, remove the jump altogether and try again.

I have a Deskstar 80GB hard drive and I am adding another drive to the computer. How do I set the Deskstar to the Master. I'm not sure what the pin settings should be?

If you have the EIDE cables on your PC, it is easy. Your drives need to have their jumpers in the CBL SEL (cable select) positions (identified on the case on the sticker) and then you simply connect your Deskstar to the Master connector, and your other drive to the Slave connector.

I want put my Hitachi Deskstar 7K250 80GB Hard Drive from a t2885 emachines on a HP/Compaq K8N8X-LA mother board without losing my data.

You won't loose your data Why wold you think you would? once data is written to a hard drive it remains there until it is removed be a user, it works on the same principlea a floppy, the magnetic coating on the surface of the anodized disks inside of the HD are written to and retain memory of the data, the only things in a computer that won't keep their data are the RAM chips which need electricity running through them to work.
