    First always turn off computer.Remove cable! And remove jumper.
    Jumper you can move with some tiny tools or with fingers,but be carefully ,don't touch electronics circuits! And always be gentle.
    Remove right angle jumper pulls out.For slave you just remove jumper you don't need put in another place.And check how parallel data cable you plug,this is VERY important.

How connect slave drive dell computer?


I assume you are trying to add a slave drive to a Dell DESKTOP? If so, is it an IDE drive (standard hard drive). To that you will find a jumper plug, usually beside where the cable plugs in but sometimes on the opposite side. The jumper options are usually listed on the drive but what you will need to do is place the jumper plug in the slave slot. You will also need to move the jumper plug on the original hard drive to the master slot. That always seems to work the best for me. However, you can try adding plugging the slave drive into the next open slot on the IDE cable, which is already plugged into the original hard drive. If you get lucky it may automatically recognize the new drive as the slave. You may need to setup/configure the BIOS to set the master and slave drives. To check BIOS setting, hold F2 or F10 when you turn on/boot the PC.

Need verbage on jumper settings for Master/Slave, & cable select. I cannotput my hands on a manual and am moving it to a new system. Thanks. //Jim//


Hello,

There are three jumpers on the back of the unit marked MST, SLA & CAB or something like that.

If it will be the only drive in the system you are putting it in connect it to the black connector (or if they are not colored to the end connector). And use the MST (master) jumper.

If it will be the second drive connect it to the grey connector (or if they are not colored the second connector from the end) and use the SLA (slave) jumper.

Note that there can be only one slave and one master drive on the cable so if there is already a drive on the cable check to see if it is set up as a master or a slave drive and set the new one as the opposite.

I have a maxtor quantum fireball plus as 20.5 hard drive. i want to set it to slave. how do i set the jumpers?


on maxtor drives, you will find the jumper within a cluster of 9 pins. if you look on the bottom of the drive, on the circuit board, the pins should be labeled "ms" "cs" and such. the "ms" and "cs" stand for "master" and "cable select". you rarely use the true "slave" setting anymore, more often than not' "slave" drives are set to "cable select" and are attached to the middle, slave position on the ide cable. in "cable select" mode, the cable decides what device is master and what is slave, depending upon the devices' position on the ide cable.

to set the drive to "slave", set the jumper so that it only has 1 pin under it, and doesnt actually jump any pins, or just take the jumper out. only use the "slave" setting if the "master" device on the same ide cable is actually set to "master".

if the master device is actually set to "cable select" then you will have to set the slave device also to "cable select" and the middle position on the ide cable will set it automatically to be a slave. , instead of using the jumper to make it the "slave".

to set the drive as "cable select", which is what i would recommend, use the jumper to connect the 2 pins which are labeled "cs", the 2nd position from the bottom position on most older maxtor drives, and attach this hard drive to the middle connector of the ide cable.

I would like to make this a slave so that my 500 GB PATA HardDrive will be the master as that has my operating system and the Plextor PX-716A drive will be the slave?


You need to configure the jumper at the back of the drive as shown in the following picture

Configure the CD/DVD drive as slave, configure the hard drive as Master.

Need IDE jumber settings.


There is a little jumper block on the rear of a DVD. by IDE connector. on the case above there will be a Table marked . Master: Slave: CS. Now, you must set the jumper as to your drive's position. IE: Master or Slave, Master is on the plug at the END of the ribbon, the Slave is on the "Other" one. Accordingly the Master has the Master Jumper ON, the Slave the Slave Jumper ON. CS is Cable Select. It isn't all that used.

I want to add another hard drive and need to know how to set the jumpers on my maxtor 90645d3 please help.ty


if you want to boot from this drive, please set the jumper to the master position.

if this drive is for additional storage, please set the jumper to slave. and make sure 1st hard drive is set to master.

if this is the only drive in the system, please set the jumper to single or remove the jumper.

there will be a chart telling you which pins are for which setting in the jumper area, which is between the data plug and the power plug on the back of your HDD.

main thing that will cause drives to not work is 2 jumpers on the same cable and they both are set to the same thng.. i.e. master/master or slave/slave. also, if one is set to single drive it will likely bypass the slave drive.

Replaced teac dvd-r/cd-rw drive in Toshiba 2435-s255 running Windows XP. System does not recognize new disk drive.


if you put it on the same ide ribbon as another drive then youll need to set 1 as master and 1 as slave, theres a jumper setting on the back of your drive. on the top of your drive it should tell you were master is and were slave is, youll need to pull the little black plug out (jumper) and move it to where you want it to be, i.e master or slave

hope it helps
