Before you go to switch any drive to master, look over you optical drives and other hard drives to make sure they are not set on Cable Select with the jumpers on the back of them. If you have 2 optical drives, set one to master and one to slave, same with you hard drives. If you only have one optical drive then set it to master. The jumper layouts are on the big label stuck to the top of the drive.

After setting the jumpers on them you need to install them. Both IDE cables you have 3 plugs. One connects to the mother board, another to the slave and another to the master. Connect them to their corresponding drives.

Laptop 2nd HDD(Slave) running max 20mb/s


Why not install a new 2.5" hdd in your laptop caddy.I replaced my 40gb with a 160gb, works fine and the data tranfer speed is better than a slave configuration. The average speed of around 40mb/sec Is because of the smaller platter, the amount of cache, the firmware installed and so on.

there are few thing you ahve to keep in mind

there are two type of hard disk
1. IDE
2. SATA

As per your hdd capacity it should of IDE type.

Now there are two IDE slots on motherboard. One is Primary and other is Secondary

You can fix two hdd with one IDE Slot that mean you can fix up upto faour IDE hdd at a time

Now again there are Primary master and Primary Slave

and

Secondary Master and Secondary Slave

Now You have to examine what was the location of previous hdd
1 Primary Master
2 Primary Slave
3 Secondary Master
4 Secondary Slave.

Now you have to make a HDD master or Slave.

just in between data cable connector and power cable connector there is a jumper. that specify the master or slave. do reply me if it works well thanks

I cant install any operating system in a desktop Gateway


you cannot install an operating system on an hdd on one system and just plug it in to another computer, as windows installs itself according to the specs of the machine you install it to. Have you tried plugging it in to a the second IDE slot? also check your jumper make sure that it is set to master

Hard drive not working


hi im josh in cebu phils.Friend if that happens whrein your 2nd hdd dont detect. Try to use these solutions. Check first the jumper of the hardisk whether it is stated as slave or master. if 2nd disk is master the jumper should be in the master and if it is slave the jumper must be slave. or try to use another IDE cable. put them as both master the first hdd in first ide slot and your 8 GB 2nd hardisk in 2nd slot as master also. or try to enter bios setup utility then try to check or detect the both device.thats all good luck

I installed an additional hard drive in my laptop. The computer will no longer boot up. I've read the the BIOS needs to be changed by I don't know how.


Please tell me which Motherboard your system has???
If you have added an additional drive, check whether you have set the jumpers right for master/slave/cable select configuration.

If you bios setup to boot up from first HDD, then the bootable HDD shall be in master mode. Configure bootable HDD as master & additional one as slave.

If still no luck, Put this additional HDD on other IDE slot.
Tell me if this works...

Re: lg tower xp install


Hi,
the boot device setup in the bios, if you set atapi-cd rom as first boot device. then hdd second. and fdd last.
it appears that you have a faulty connection from the IDE ( 40-80 wire cable ) that runs from the motherboard Primary/secondary slot. check the cable goes from motherboard to hard-drive and is connected firmly, also check the jumper blocks ( small white plastic block ) is set to master or slave on both devices ( cd-hard-drive ) if both on same cable set hard-drive to slave and CD rom to master. if they are both set as master or slave, they will conflict with each other.
if you need further help, please mail back.
