Question about Toshiba 320GB MK3265GSX SATA 3Gb/s 2.5" Internal SATA II Hard Drive
Decide which hard drive will be the startup (master) drive. If this
drive was the startup drive previously, or if it's a new hard drive,
then the master drive designation will already be set.
2. To change the designation of a new drive to be a slave drive, skip to step 4.
3. To change the designation of an existing drive to be a slave drive: Turn off the computer, unplug the power cord, remove the drive from its drive bay, and disconnect the drive from its power cord and ribbon cable.
4. Check the hard drive documentation or the label on the drive itself for master/slave jumper settings.
5. Find the jumpers on the circuit board of the drive. Jumpers are plastic plugs with metal sleeves that form a circuit between a pair of pins. Jumper locations are labeled on the board with a J followed by a number (such as J20).
6. Use tweezers or very small pliers to remove or reposition the jumpers to the configuration shown in the documentation or on the disk label.

Testimonial: "my computer is a laptop..how can i use slave jumper settings??"
I suggest try to isolate the problem, try to check if its going to work to any other machine, see if the enclosure can properly supply power for the HDD, also check if the cable that comes with the enclosure is working, try different cable or try going to any computer local center and have them try your external HDD. Make sure you installed properly the HDD.
Hope It helps. =)
