Jumpers on the newer Western Digital drives are different. If the drive is a single, then you should not have any jumpers on. If it's going to be a master and there's a slave, the jumper goes on the middle two pins of the five sets

I need firmware for Western Digital WD Caviar Blue WD3200AAJS - hard drive - 320 GB - SATA-300 SATA


If you are troubleshooting a system or OS problem, you should not consider firmware updates until after exploring more typical troubleshooting steps like file system error checking and anti-virus scanning.

try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this should schedule the task on restart then defragment your hard drive

How do i reprogram a IDE hard drive for my computer


Yes, you can put it on your current computer as a second hard drive.
What I would do is visit Western Digital's website and download their disk tools.
Once you do this, you can clone the old hard drive (the 20 GB) to your newer one (the 80 GB). Then you can make the larger hard drive the master and use the old smaller drive for a backup.
In fact, if I'm not mistaken, there are directions on the WD site to tell you exactly how to do that.

I need adapter connectors


It's not just the connectors - it's a whole different system. You should have bought the older type drive.
There may be adaptor cards that can fit internally but I don't think you'll get the benefit of SATA if the motherboard is not SATA compatible. (I might be wrong though - I'm a mac specialist)

I am having trouble installing a second hard drive on my computer. Its a WD caviar enhanced IDE hard drive (model wd800) and I'm using a bidirectional Sata to Ide adapter since my computer works with SATA....


Have you enabled the drive in the BIOS yet?
To do this hit F2 when it starts up and then go down to drives. Hit enter and then locate the SATA port that you have it in and turn the drive on.

Let me know if this works or not. If it doesn't, give me additional details and we will try to fix it.
