To slave a hard disk, first you must set its jumper setting to slave because if you dont set it, your system will be on chaos because the system will be confuse who will be its master harddisk. so after setting it, power on and check at its BIOS if your new hard disk is registered to the system.

I need to know the jumper setting for my hard drive to set it to a slave


Here is the jumper settings for Samsung hard drives. Assuming that your hard drive is bigger than 32GB you have to use the "General Pin Setting"

Note that after changing the jumper, it's suggested to partition and format your hard disk drive.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

How to make master and slave


"Now for a refresher course on hard drive connections. When connectingmore than one hard drive to a computer on the same IDE controller, yougenerally have to assign one as the primary (master) and one as thesecondary (slave). You do this by changing the jumpers on the harddrive next to the power connector. Normally, the drive will have adiagram to let you know which jumper should be set for a master driveand which to set for a slave drive. You'll notice in the picture belowthe jumpers are circled on the end of the drive and the top of thedrive shows the diagram to follow."

you can take backup of D drive om other computer .
Conect your harddrive to that other computers CPU but make sure that your hardddisk is slave which has issue you can set slave your hdd with jumper read on harddisk.
then connect it to cpu with SATA or IDE .
Then winxp find that all partition then take backup.

Presss "R"
thats it.
Thwen it repair your winxp then you can use easily.

It's a bit pricey, but if your data is important, it's worth every penny.

Hope this helps!

Connection for virused harddrive to fully protected hardrive


If you examine the hard disk you should see on the labels the jumper positions for setting it to slave. You will then need to attach the slave disk to the power and data cables inside your friend's computer.
