This hard drive is a SATA hard disk drive & you cannot set it to slave. This kind of setting is only possible on IDE drives.

How can i make my Samsung sp0802 hard drive become the master instead of the slave... thank you very much


Hi Good day!!! follow this

1. Decide which hard drive will be the startup (master) drive. If this drive was the startup drive previously, or if it's a new hard drive, then the master drive designation will already be set.

2. To change the designation of a new drive to be a slave drive, skip to step 4.

3. To change the designation of an existing drive to be a slave drive: Turn off the computer, unplug the power cord, remove the drive from its drive bay, and disconnect the drive from its power cord and ribbon cable.

4. Check the hard drive documentation or the label on the drive itself for master/slave jumper settings.

5. Find the jumpers on the circuit board of the drive. Jumpers are plastic plugs with metal sleeves that form a circuit between a pair of pins. Jumper locations are labeled on the board with a J followed by a number (such as J20).

6. Use tweezers or very small pliers to remove or reposition the jumpers to the configuration shown in the documentation or on the disk label.

7. Install (or reinstall) the hard drive in the computer. (See "How to Install a Second Hard Drive.")

You dont need jumper settings for sata hard drive, the sata ports on *********** board have the configuration, just connect the new hdd to the 2nd sata port.

Need jumper setting for slave drive ide


If the drive is the Seagate Baracuda series, then simply remove all the jumpers from 8-pin jumper block and it will be a Slave drive.

If you want any other settings, the jumper settings are described here:

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.

Strapping or Jumpering for slave


You need the system info for the laptop you are using to see if a 2nd hdd needs to be set as slave or set in the cable select mode. Either right above the jumper pins or on the top of the hdd above the pins you should see 3 groups of 2 pins. They will be marked, ma, cs, & sl. They may not be in this order as each hdd manufacturer is different but all will have those 3 markings. If you set as slave cover the 2 jumper pins marked sl. For cable select cover the 2 pins marked cs. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
