CS means Cable Select .Parallel data cable have two conectors.If you set jumper set on CS ,in this way ,example,you have two HDD when you plug parallel data cable in middle connector ,1 Hard drive working like Master ,2 HDD work like slave,if you plug in last connector First HDD working like slave,second HDD Master.

on the back of the drive there should be a black, white or yellow jumper. If you look very carfully at the back of the harddrive where the jumper is, it will tell you which position you need to have the jumper in for slave and which position you need to have it in for master. If it is already in the master position, carefully pull it out then push it back into the correct position to act as slave. Some hardrives simpley have a M for master and a S for slave while other harddrive will actually have the words. I hope this helps.

To use the WD 800 as a master there must be no jumper attached to it.The maxtor has a diagram for the jumper and it MUST be set to slave not cable select.
