    Ul_haq:

    Thank you for your comments.

    Let me restate my problem with more details for your understanding.

    My 4 storage devices were configured in following manner:

    <1.CD burner bought about in 2003, branded AOpen, set as Secondary Master>

    <2.DVD burner bought in 2006, branded LG, set as Secondary Slave>

    <3.IDE hardisk, branded Seagate, set as Primary Master>

    <4.SATA hardisk-(boot disk), branded Seagate, set as SATA1>

    P.S. My DVD burner is a more recent model, its READ/WRITE speed is faster than that of the CD burner.



    My CD burner is currently physically installed on top of DVD burner at upper slots of the chasis.



    Owing to limit distance between master and slave connector on both 80-pin IDE cable, the Primary Slave connector cannot not reach neither two burners. Therefore CD and DVD burner were compelled to be connected on Secondary IDE cable.

    My concern is which burner should be set as Master in order to achieve optimal performance and stablity; especailly when a data disc inside either burner is being copied to a blank disc inside another burner ? (Copy On-The-Fly)

    My impression is that the burner with faster READ/WRITE speed be set as Slave but I am sure.



    Any comment from anyone is welcome and great appreciated !

How do I slave a cd-rom drive in a dimension 1100


Most CD or DVD drives installed in modern computers have a group of short jumper pins on the rear of the drive that determine the master or slave setting for the device. The master or slave setting helps to identify the drive when it shares a connector cable inside the computer with another device, such as a hard drive or even another optical drive. Without the master or slave jumper setting, the computer would not be able to tell one device from another or from which drive to retrieve or write data. Configuring a CD drive as master or slave is a relatively simple task that takes only a couple of minutes.
Turn the CD drive so that you view the rear of the unit, then check the position of the jumper covers on the set of pins next to the power adapter plug. If the CD drive will be the only device on the IDE data ribbon cable, set the jumper cover on the two pins farthest away from the power connector. This position is the master drive setting, and, by default, most CD drives ship with this configuration. In most cases, if the CD drive is the only device connected to the cable, you do not need to change the jumper setting. Determine if you need to change the CD drive jumper setting if the device will share a connector cable with a hard drive or another optical drive. If the CD drive will be the primary (master) device on the cable, do not change the jumper setting. If the CD drive will be the secondary (slave) device on the cable, continue to the next step to change the setting. Use a pair of needle-nosed pliers or your fingers to remove the jumper cover from the CD drive if the unit will be the secondary device on the IDE ribbon cable. Set the cover over the pair of pins next the pair from which you removed it, then press it until it completely covers the pins. The jumper is now in the slave setting position.

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.

After installing cd-rom i turned computer on and it says i need to change the stand alone slave drive master


Hi there,

I think that the problem here may be that the Jumper on the CD-ROM needs adjusting. The Jumper is a tiny piece of plastic at the rear of the hardware in question.

There will be a diagram on the top, or rear of the CD-ROM, with a choice of 3 settings. If it is a solitary Optical drive then place the Jumper in the 'C' position.

If it is a Slave, or secondary drive, then place the Jumper in the 'S' position & if it is a Primary or Master drive the it is to be placed in the 'M' position, respectively.

I hope that this sees an end to your dillema & lots of luck.

Kindest regards,

Ste

The jumper combination for a slave drive on an LG GSA-4163B


Most CD/DVD drives have a label showing the jumper setting for Master (MA), Slave (SL)and Cable Select (CS).
You only need a single jumper and it is inserted in a vertical position.
There are a group of 6 pins (3 columns of 2 pins) next to the 40 pin IDE connector.
The Slave setting is usually the middle set of pins.

PC will not see Maxtor 80GB DiamondMax Plus 9 as seconary slave.


Hi,

Two thing,

First, never use a Maxtor HDD as a slave to a CDROM/DVD, doesn't work and tends to cause stability issues. So try swapping the jumper on the CD/DVD to slave and setting the Maxtor to Master, this should get it working.

Second, if it is showing up as 33GB, you have the Jumpers set to limit capacity(designed to avoid troubles on older systems. If this is the case, you likely have a single jumper in the center row of pins between the power and data cables. If it only works as master at the moment, then you likely have the neter row(limit size pins) and the one closest to the data cable(Master Pin) both plugged in.

Change your DVD/CD to slave, remove the limiting jumper and ensure the Master jumper is installed on the Maxtor, then be sure the end connector on the ATA(likely marked master) is plugged into the Maxtor and the middle connector(Slave) is plugged into the DVD/CD, this should have you all fixed up.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris
