Question about Toshiba MK4026GAX (hdd2193) 40 GB Hard Drive
I need to try and slave this little drive on a desktop (minitower) PC; but I can't figure out which jumper position is best. No matter how I jumper it; the primary drive won't boot into Windows. The drive circuit board isn't labeled for using jumpers (naturally), so I've been doing the "trial and error" method.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
Check the primary drive. Maybe the jumper for that is set to master/SINGLE drive. You need to change it to accept a slave drive alongside it.
Let me know if this helps.

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
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
