Question about Computers & Internet
Hi - that drive comes configured as a master. Unless your running a somewhat older system there is no need to do anything. If it is an "older" system you may have to set the transfer rate to 1.5G/sec. That's about all you can do with the jumpers. If you have two SATA drives just connect them to two controllers and your system will treat each drive as drive 0. I'm including a diagram of the jumpers.
If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

When more than one hard drive is installed on a computer system, each drive competes for control of the computer. To allow both drives to work in harmony on the same computer system, the controlling (or startup) drive is designated the master drive and the other drive is designated the slave drive. You can change this designation. The following procedure applies to any PC-compatible computer.
Instructions Difficulty: Moderately Challenging Things You’ll Need: circuit board of the drive. Jumpers are plastic plugs with metal sleeves that form a circuit between a pair of pins. Jumper locations are labeled on the board with a J followed by a number (such as J20). Step 6Use tweezers or very small pliers to remove or reposition the jumpers to the configuration shown in the documentation or on the disk label. Step 7Install (or reinstall) the hard drive in the computer. (See "How to Install a Second Hard Drive.") Set to label on your hard drive. Different on every drive.
