If you leave it at cable select the cable will set the drive to either master or slave depending on where it is on the cable, the first or second connector. Just make sure any other drive hooked up is set to cable select.

Your best option is to actually set each drive to master and slave. Each drive should show you where to put the jumper. Make sure you only have one master and slave though.

Which jumper to use? The one thats already on the HD...?
:D

Need to know the correct jumper settings for a MK3205MAV hard disk, to mount and read it in a firewire enclosure


If it has a CS jumper on the back - just use that - it stands for Cable Select - so, the machine tells the HD how to behave.

How to set jumpers in an old quantum fireball Lct20 HD. The master mode needs to be "jumpered"


Please look on top of your HD and u will see a table that show u the HD jumper setting (Master, Slave or Cable Select).
Then look again the rear side of the HD and u will see some pin that locate beside the power input of the HD, that is the jumper pin.

Now set the jumper according to your requirement refer to the jumper setting table just now. To set it just unplug the jumper (look like a U shape contactor covered with plastic) and plug it back according to the requirement. Sometime u may lost the jumper contactor, nevermind just use what ever conductor cable to roll between the two pin and make sure the pin is connected that all.

I need jumper settings. I'm converting it to an external hd.


You should be able to use it as Cable Select or "CS" address the label of your drive to establish which pins need to be jumped for this mode.

Certain manufactures are different, and require drives to be set to Master while on certain controllers, such as the one you are using for External.

These settings will not harm the drive, providing you follow the label, you may just have to use trial and error. Just make sure you stay within the "CS" "MA" "SL" or Cable Select, Master, and Slave options.

Hope this information helps.

No cd included with hard drive, how do i install?


normally you dont need any software to install the HD if its a newer computer (last couple of years) just check your jumper settings, it should show you on the HD where to put the jumper for master / slave.

If your putting it in as a second HD for more space you will want to put the jumper on the back of the drive to "slave" and attach it to the same cable as the hard drive in your computer already.

Wanting to use as slave hard drive


hi ronrayhall,

I installed a maxtor hard drive, and they are shipped with a default of cable select. If you have this hard drive you dont need to change the jumpers. You do need to make sure however your original hard drive is also on cable select.

If you dont have a maxtor, alot of manuf. print the jumper settings on the hard drive, if not you might have to find the install instructions on the web for that drive. There is a good listing of Jumper settings at this website if its easier for you than searching the web. http://drivejumper.com/
