Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 80 GB Hard Drive
There are 2 types of interfaces for your mentioned HDD "Seagate barracuda 7200.9" ie PATA & SATA intefaces!
If it is IDE ie PATA interface, you just set the jumper to Slave.
If it is SATA, interface, You cannot "SLAVE" a SATA drive. All SATA controllers are stand alone. You just plug it into the Sata slot available & power cable to the HDD. Be sure that the HDD is partition & formatted so that your system can detect the HDD.
Hope it helps.

1) Open your computer case
2) On the back of the drive where the connectors are, you have jumpers. These small plastic tabs change the function of your hard drive. All hard drives have a special setup procedure. The information about jumper settings is on the top of the hard drive.
3) Remove plastic tabs and put them according to "Slave" instructions.
4) Connect drive to middle connector of the cord.
5) Connect power supply cord.
6) Secure the drive in place and close computer case.
Also make sure that the main drive is not set as slave.

Master is 7-8 (the 2 furthest from the power connector)
Slave is no jumpers selected
Here is a manual for your model for reference:

SOURCE: SATA HDD make SLAVE
IDE Cable with 3 connectors (you have 1 or need to buy 1) :
- blue: conn to motherboard
- black: conn to master HD
- grey: conn to slave HD
Cable (select:) cable will auto detect with most modern HD's from same type (SATA it was i think) and you need to go to you're BIOS, set up cable select for the HD's. Maybe best to set up master first, not both at same time. If you have a SATA and ATA set up the master first, then other. So if SATA is slafe but it in grey connector, otherwise black. For an ATA you might need a converter cable for the power, most motherboards don't have 1.

Dear FixYa team,
Thx for your kind offering to me. I already call my friend to help me here. And he seems already found the solution. The problem was comes from USB cable malfuction, and I think it somehow affect the firmware detection. Gladly he can back up it again with another harddisk, just try to baiting it to make the firmware read. Now I'm still waiting for data recovery only. I'm so sorry that I can't use ur helps now, coz I needed it in hurry. Thx
