Can't detect the hard drive?

The drive has several aspects to pay attention to. IF it is an IDE, make sure the cable is properly inserted (pin one to pin one) (unless you have a connector that is keyed)

The power cord. And the disk select. This is 6 to 8 pins that designate the drive to be a Master drive, slave drive, or cable select.

The motherboards usually can on handle 4 ide devices, (unless additional hardware is installed)
IDE1 one master drive and one slave drive (Master on IDE1 is usually the MAIN boot drive)
IDE 2 one master and one slave drive

Hope this helps, without more information on your problem, this is what I think will help.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Need master slave configuration


You should have a jumper configuration written somewhere on the front (up) side of the hard Disk ... Look there, or look just around the Pins... Look for M, S, CS (Master, Slave, Cable Select)

Master slave jumper settings on 250gb Maxline Plus II SATA

There are no master/slave settings on SATA drives because each drive has its own cable. The drive order is determined by what SATA port they are plugged into, or by the BIOS configuration.

Diamond max 20 hard drive won't install - jumper problems - want as slave, my old one as master

on the back of the drive there should be a black, white or yellow jumper. If you look very carfully at the back of the harddrive where the jumper is, it will tell you which position you need to have the jumper in for slave and which position you need to have it in for master. If it is already in the master position, carefully pull it out then push it back into the correct position to act as slave. Some hardrives simpley have a M for master and a S for slave while other harddrive will actually have the words. I hope this helps.
