What are jumper settings for slave?

For most modern hard drives, you don't have to worry about this. If you're using an older (IDE) hard drive, look carefully at where the jumper is. There will typically be three positions - MA (master,) SL (Slave) and CS (Cable Select.)

How to install

When you install a DVD RW; a few things to consider. Locate a IDE connection to your motherboard. (do you need to share with the cdrom already in the pc or not?) You need to ensure the jumpers are set right. there are 3 spots on the back labled "CS/MA/SL" (on the lg, these are typically stamped into the top) The "first" drive on the wire is "ma" the second is 'sl" or ensure both are set to "cs" (which is cable select) this will ensure they can be detected. Hook up a power connection to the drive (use anyone that is free) OF COURSE, ensure your computer is OFF before you do this.

Need the switch setting for connection as slave

On the back of the drive is a set of six pins.
There will be writing above or below these pins it will be (cs),(sl)(ma).
There should be a cap on two of these pins make sure you put them on the two pins marked (sl) slave. If you are connecting this along with another
drive make sure the other drive is set to (ma) master.

I need the jumper settings for Maxtor N256 hard drive.

Hard drives have three jumper settings on them.

If you have a hard drive on the end (last) on the ribbon cable connectors, then it is the master drive, and should be jumpered as such-- the jumper should be on the MA pins, any drive in the middle of the cable is jumpered as slave and should be on the SL pins.
CS usually causes problems, and I do not use it.
There are no jumpers on the motherboard that need to be changed for the hard drive. The only other settings for the hard drive are in the BIOS.
Please vote 4 thumbs up!!,

My lg dvd-rw is not detected but has a power in it

Disconnect the "data" and "power" cables from the drive.
Remove the drive.
Look at the labels on the "back".
You should see some pairs of gold-coloured pins:

Move the small jumper to the 'CS' position.
Reinsert the drive.
Reconnect the "data" and "power" cables.
Restart your computer.
Now, it should be detected.

If not, move that small jumper to 'MA', and try again.

If that still fails, move the small jumper to 'SL' and try again.

How do i change jumper leads on cd/dvd drive

There are no actual "jumper leads" on a CD/DVD drive although there is a jumper to set the drive as either Master,Slavve or Cable Select.
This is a small plastic covered metal "clip" located at the back of the drive ans covers 2 of the 6 pins.

The settings are usually stamped in the casing of the drive above each set of 2 pins as follows Ma,Sl,CS. The jumper just pulls off although you may need a small screwdriver or pair of tweezers to enable removal and just slides back on.

How do you set a LG GSA-H10A DVD Drive as a Slave?

on the drive there will be printed or stamped:
MA, SL, CS (maybe in a different order.) Often there is a printed label, and often the re are tiny letters stamped either above or below the jumper pins.
You need to place a jumper in the vertical position over 1 set of pins corresponding to the map above.
ie if you want the drive to be a Master, jumper the vertical set marked (or indicated) as MA.
If you want it to be Slave, jumper the SL set.
If you want the drive to be set depending on where on the IDE ribbon cable is conected, connect the pins marked as CS.
BIOS will then allocate the drive as either a master or slave.

Using Internet Explorer but not Firefox, get the manual here:

Note the manual is a dejaVu document which will ask to load a viewer plug-in into Internet Explorer.

Actually, inside that document, there is a drawing indicating that reading from left to right (ie from next to audio connector), the pins are: CS,SL, MA. So for example upper and lower pins at the extreme left are Cable Select, so you would jumper those 2 pins.
