These jumpers you're referring to normally are spoken of when dealing with a CD/DVD Drive or a hard drive. Usually it's an older one too. They look like this...

You'll need to look on the device itself. There it will have labeled which pin set is for slave or master. Just move the jumper to the correct pins.

This is hard drive specific. It is not possible to give an accurate response to this question without knowing the make and model of your hard drive.

Jumper settings for master drive



if its a SATA hard driveyou dont need to set master slave the biggest capacity hard drive will set as master

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to IDE-1 means Pri slave escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

you will have to have master with slave set up
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

Let me know if you need further assistance.

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.

Diamond max 20 hard drive won't install - jumper problems - want as slave, my old one as 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.

Hard drive not detected


Rickyrudy, I suspect one of the following may work: -The problem drive is set as the slave on the secondary IDE channel. If it?s the only drive change it to the master. -Try checking the drive setup setting in the BIOS, make sure both drives are set to auto detect in the BIOS. If this works don?t forget to try setting the unused drive setting to none to speed up the boot process. -If you are using jumpers to define the master and slave double check the settings against the chart on the drive in question. -If you?re using cable select to define master/slave drives try using the jumpers instead. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
