Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
The primary internal hard drive is hooked up to motherboard with sata cable and has no master/slave setting that i can see, the new hard drive will be hooked up with a eide cable , do i use the same eide cable that is already hooked up to the dvd drive ? and how do i set the jumper on the new internal hard drive?
Yes, you can use, Please see label attached to the harddrive for a jumper setting to become primary harddrive.
in the DVD rom there's also a label on it. but the most common setting is slave is in the center.
C S M -
the jumper is set to center to become a slave.
the hard drive is should be a master
connecting to the other end of the IDE cable.
HDD-should be a master
DVD rom-Should be a slave
Hope this help.
