Actually mike is correct, you have to plug one into sata0 and the other into sata1. zero is master and 1 is slave. so you would need four sata ports on you motherboard.

Could be wrong, but i think you leave a SATA drives jumper on cable select. There is no slave as such..in terms of the old master slave of pata drives..running of the same cable..Good luck.

The BIOS does not detect or recognize the ATA / SATA hard drive Tips and tricks for troubleshooting a Serial ATA or ATA/IDE internal drive that is not detected in the BIOS.
There are six main reasons why a system BIOS will not detect the presence of an internal hard drive. Here is a list of them. They are not in any particular order, but you can follow these steps one by one to troubleshoot this problem:
  1. Drive not enabled in the BIOS
  2. Serial ATA drivers are not properly installed
  3. Faulty or unplugged data cable
  4. Drive is not spinning up
  5. Incorrect jumper settings on the drive
  6. Faulty hard drive
Note: Sections 3, 4, 5, and 6 pertain to PC or Mac systems. Sections 1 and 2 pertain only to PC systems.
For more detailed step-by-step troubleshooting on this topic, please see the Seagate Serial ATA troubleshooter "Drive Not Detected" section.
After verifying that your ATA or SATA port is set to Auto-Detect or is enabled, if you find that your disk drive is not being detected (auto-detected) by the system BIOS, try the following steps to try and isolate/troubleshoot the problem.
  1. this link can be useful.

    System setup is where the date and time are stored and where startup preferences like NumLock or Passwords are defined. In addition, many hardware settings are defined in System Setup.
    In particular, hard disk drives are often controlled here. At the simplest level, hard drives are numbered in Setup as Drive 0, Drive 1, etc or sometimes as Primary Master, Primary Slave. Which ever way these are named, they have a basic ON / OFF setting (sometimes AUTOMATIC or something similar). If your drive is not detected it may be because it is turned OFF in System Setup.
    In most cases, the boot drive is Drive 0 or Primary Master. When you add a second drive to the system, it may be need to be enabled by turning it ON in System Setup.

    Sample screen shot showing a Dell System Setup section for disk drives:
    48-12s.jpg
  2. 48-1s.jpg
  3. To be able to hit the F6 button, you must restart the Setup process, and watch the bottom of the screen after pressing Enter on the "Welcome to Setup" screen. There will be some moments of files being loaded, and then you should see a message appear that says "Press F6 if you need to install a 3rd party SCSI or RAID driver". This message will only stay on the screen for a couple of seconds, so press F6 as soon as you see it appear.

    (Click to expand)
    48-2s.jpg
  4. After this is done, you will see other messages appear, and it will act as though nothing is happening, but eventually a screen will appear that will allow you to install the drivers for the add-in SATA controller. The screen will look like the sample below:

    (Click to expand)
    48-3s.jpg
  5. After you press S, the driver install process will continue and the floppy diskettes will be needed. Further instructions will be furnished after the driver install process has ended.

    (Click to expand)
    48-4s.jpg
  6. Insert the floppy diskette containing the drivers for the add-in Serial ATA controller.
  7. Once the drivers are loaded, proceed with the normal Windows XP/2000 installation.

A few further notes on the driver diskette:
For the hard drive to be detected in a new installation, the drivers for the add-in SATA controller/motherboard must be loaded at the beginning of installation.
The drivers for the controller/motherboard can probably be found either on the CD that came with it or on the manufacturer's website. These drivers do not come from Seagate; they come from the motherboard manufacturer. Simply load the required drivers on the diskette and have it ready.

  • The BIOS will not detect a hard disk if the data cable is damaged or the connection is incorrect.
    Serial ATA cables, in particular, can sometimes fall out of their connection. Be sure to check your SATA cables are tightly connected to the SATA port connection.
  • The easiest way to test a cable is to replace it with another cable. If the problem persists, then the cable was not the cause of the problem.
  • For ATA drives, Seagate recommends using UDMA cabling with a maximum length of 18 inches. UDMA cables have color coded connections which require proper orientation when connecting.
    • Blue connector - always connects to the motherboard.
    • Grey (middle) connector - is used for slave devices on the cable.
    • Black connector - is used for master device connection.

  • to determine whether it is providing sufficient electrical power to operate the drives and devices you have in your computer.
  • If the drive is still not spinning, connect it in another computer if possible.
  • Connect the drive in a SATA-USB enclosure or something similar if possible.
  • If the drive does not spin up after all of these steps, please visit the Warranty page to begin a warranty replacement order.

    ATA: It is recommended that all Seagate ATA hard disks supporting the Cable Select jumper option be configured as Cable Select. If your computer system was built prior to October 1998 and does not support UDMA 66 or greater you will be required to use the Master/Slave jumper settings.

    When using Cable Select jumper settings on your ATA drive, all devices connected to the UDMA cable must also use the Cable Select setting. The cable decides master/slave device detection when the cable select jumper settings are used.
  • SeaTools for DOS (see the tutorial here) to test the drive. If SeaTools does not detect the drive after the steps followed above, or an error code that signifies drive failure displays, please proceed to the our Warranty Services page to begin a warranty replacement order.

    How to set the JB Jumper Setting on a wd25eurs Harddrive


    if its a sata hard drive there are no jumper settings the larger driver should take the job as primary


    if you have an ide hard drive

    you can find the jumper location next to the power on a hard drive and the settings for plastic jumper location is usually printed on the top of a hard drive

    IDE-0 means Pri master
    IDE-1 means Pri slave
    IDE-2 means Sec master
    IDE-3 means Sec slave


    single or master :::::

    master with slave ::'::

    slave :::':

    black line between dots is plastic jumper

    note the plastic jumper is ' located at the rear of the hard drive between the EIDE and electrical lead/s

    for the sata

    What You Need

    • A Phillips screwdriver and four 6-32 UNC drive mounting screws.
    • A Serial ATA interface cable (sold separately). Maximum length is 39 inches (1 meter).
    • A Serial ATA-compatible power cable or adapter (sold separately).
    • A version of Windows with FAT32 or NTFS file system.
    • A system with a motherboard that has a Serial ATA connector on it, or a Serial ATA host adapter and available PCI slot in which to install the adapter.

    Refer to your computer system documentation to see if your system supports Serial ATA on the motherboard and to locate the Serial ATA connector.


    If your system does not have a Serial ATA connector on the motherboard, you must purchase a Serial ATA host adapter that is compatible with your computer and operating system and install it with the appropriate device driver according to the host adapter manufacturers installation instructions.


    Note: See our list of companies that sell Serial ATA components including host adapters, cables, and power adapters.
    Handling Precautions

    • Disk drives are fragile. Do not drop or jar the drive. Handle the drive only by the edges or frame. Keep the drive in the protective anti-static container until you are ready to install it to minimize handling damage.
    • Drive electronics are extremely sensitive to static electricity. While installing the drive, wear a wrist strap and cable connected to ground.
    • Turn off the power to the host system during installation.
    • Do not disassemble the drive. Doing so voids the warranty.
    • Do not apply pressure or attach labels to the circuit board or to the top of the drive.
    Attaching Cables and Mounting the Drive

    1. Attach one end of the drive interface cable to the Serial ATA interface connector on your computers motherboard or Serial ATA host adapter (see your computer manual for connector locations). Host adapter configuration is shown below.
    Note: Serial ATA connectors are keyed to ensure correct orientation.


    2. Attach the interface and power cables to the drive.

    3. Secure the drive using four 6-32 UNC mounting screws in either the side-mounting or bottom-mounting holes. Insert the screws no more than 0.20 inches (5.08 mm) into the bottom-mounting holes and no more than 0.14 inches (3.55 mm) into the side-mounting holes.
    Note: Do not overtighten the screws or use metric screws. This may damage
    the drive.

    Configuring the BIOS

    Close your computer case and restart your computer. Your computer may automatically detect your new drive. If your computer does not automatically detect your new drive, follow the steps below.

    1. Restart your computer. While the computer restarts, run the system setup program (sometimes called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is usually done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC, or F1 or F2 during the startup process.

    2. Within the system setup program, instruct the system to auto detect your new drive.

    3. Save the settings and exit the setup program. When your computer restarts, it should recognize your new drive. If your system still doesnt recognize your new drive, see the troubleshooting section on the back of this sheet.
    Note: Serial ATA is a new interface type.

    Some older systems may see the drive and classify it as a SCSI device if you are using a Serial ATA host adapter. This is normal even though this is not a SCSI disc drive. Many systems BIOS will not identify a Serial ATA drive connected to a PCI SATA host adapter.

    This is because a PCI SATA Host Adapter has its own BIOS which is used to identify hard drives connected to it which is separate from the BIOS of the computer.

    To determine whether or not the SATA Host Adapter is detecting the Serial ATA hard drive, please consult the documentation provided by the Serial ATA Host Adapters manufacturer. This does not affect drive performance or capacity.

    Hi where is the jumper to put the hard drive into slave position on a hitachi TRAVELSTAR HTS541080G9SA00 ? I cannot find it Many thanks best regards


    Hi
    There are no jumpers to set on a SATA drive since they all use individual interfaces with the motherboard.
    All you can do is connect the drive you want as master to the first SATA header,slave to the second,and then set the boot priority in BIOS.
    They don't have jumper pins like the old days.
    Post again if you have questions,and if this helps would you rate my post?

    I am trying to install a Maxtor Basics 500GB External Desktop Hard Drive and cannot see the drive on my PC. I'm assuming it is not installed. I operate a Windowss XP Platform. Help!


    Right click on my computer and go to manage, then go to storage, disk manager and see if the disk shows up there, you may need to partition it first, you can make one partition of that hard drive. If it is not in there, check the jumpers and make sure it is not the same as the main HD. The main drive should be master and the second drive should be slave, or make it cable select and do it in the bios.

    My Computer did not access Western Digital Hard Disk, Model No. WD 1600 AABB Caviar SATA.


    Good morning! Please make sure that the drive’s power and SATA cables are properly connected. If the Serial ATA host adapter card is installed in a 64-bit PCI slot on the system motherboard, move the card to a 32-bit slot.

    Verify that only one power cable (either SATA or legacy) is connected to the drive. Check to see that the power connector and SATA interface cable are securely attached and that the
    SATA host adapter card is properly seated in the PCI slot.

    The Serial ATA interface connects each drive in a point-to-point configuration with the built-in SATA port on the motherboard or with the SATA host adapter card; therefore eliminating the master/slave relationship as required with EIDE. Each drive utilizes its own
    cable for data transfer rates. Jumper settings for Western Digital Serial ATA hard drives are mainly used for enterprise storage environments.

    Most third party controller cards and RAID adapters are recognized as a SCSI device under Device Manager. This is normal and will not affect your drive or system performance.

    To verify if the Serial ATA drive is recognized by the system, Right-click on the My Computer icon, select Properties, left-click on the Hardware tab, and click on Device Manager in the window. Double-click on Disk Drives. Your new Western Digital Serial ATA drive should be listed as a "SCSI Disk Device" or "Serial ATA Disk Device." If not, make sure that all cables are securely attached and that your system BIOS has been properly configured. regards

    What 2nd "Slave" hard drive should I buy to match my "Master"?


    Any size hard drive should be compatible, but you should get the same connection type and bus speen if possible (ATA/133). If you get one from a different manufacturer, you'll have to install the bios update that comes with it and set the jumper to slave per the instructions that invariably come with any "add-on" hard drive.
