Question about Western Digital (WD3200JS) 320 GB Hard Drive
What is the Question
Posted on Apr 09, 2008
I have one of these drives as well in my HP Desktop m7640n and it no longer boots in my desktop so I pulled it, purchased a new desktop and wanted to put this as a slave to recover my files. Is this possible if there is no slave setting? And if it is not possible to make it a slave, how do I go about recovering my files?

Support can be found at Seagate.com in case this is not the exact drive. The model number you listed was not an exact match.

SOURCE: SATA HDD make SLAVE
IDE Cable with 3 connectors (you have 1 or need to buy 1) :
- blue: conn to motherboard
- black: conn to master HD
- grey: conn to slave HD
Cable (select:) cable will auto detect with most modern HD's from same type (SATA it was i think) and you need to go to you're BIOS, set up cable select for the HD's. Maybe best to set up master first, not both at same time. If you have a SATA and ATA set up the master first, then other. So if SATA is slafe but it in grey connector, otherwise black. For an ATA you might need a converter cable for the power, most motherboards don't have 1.

There are no master/slave settings on SATA drives because each drive has its own cable. The drive order is determined by what SATA port they are plugged into, or by the BIOS configuration.
