There should be a diagram showing how you should set the jumper. Set it according to what you want it to be and it should begin to should up. You can set it as Master, Slave, or Cable Select.

Serial ATA drives don't need master/slave jumpers. You can choose "computer select". In fact, you should be a ble to run an ATA drive with no jumper. When you enter set up, it should automatically be recognized with the right bios version.

How to make jumper reset on dell Latitude e6420

Doing a "jumper reset" only works with desktop computers, not with notebook/laptop computers -- to prevent a thief from "resetting" a stolen laptop.

I have 2 Hitachi 3 TB External USB Drive External Hard Disks that are not recognized by my Mac OS X 10.6.8. Have I bought the wrong ones?

have you formated your hard drives? are your black or white jumpers hooked to the pins on top of hard drive? if the hard drives are new chances are the jumpers are still in small plastic package.the jumpers are little peaces of plastic with two holes with metal in them. the jumpers go on were it says master if you are using 2 hard drives .the other hard drive the jumper goes were it says slave. if you are using 1 hard drive you put the jumper on cs.

Is there a jumper setting to run my hitachi 250 gb sata laptop hdd as a slave ?

There should be, look on the rear of the drive, close to the SATA and power connectors, you should see the jumper connections as well.

It varies from drive to drive, but the jumper setting could be engraved near the connector, look of SL for a slave setting.

If no, look on the label on the top of the drive, there should be the jumper settings listed there.
Some may be ambiguous, my last one offered the option of Master on / off. (Jumper in position 1 for on, no jumper for off) The off in this case was of course slave.

The result being, no jumpers - Slave.

Have taken hard drive from desktop want to know how to convert it to an external hard drive for laptop

You need to purchase an USB hard drive case and insert the hard drive into this USB case. You need to remove the jumper on the hard drive or set it to master drive. Power up the laptop then then power up the USB hard drive and then connect it to your laptop's USB port. The laptop will then detect this as a new device and will show up as an external storage device.

Slave jumper settings for a 2.5 Hitachi DK23DA-20F hard drive

Most hard drives I've come across have tiny little letters on the PCB next to the jumpers that say MA SL CS which are for master, slave, and cable select. If that doesn't work, go to Hitachi's website and search their support section. There is a diagram of the jumpers for that drive out there somewhere. Good luck!
