Re: Put The Hdd On Slave Mode

When you saying ATA your refering to IDE right? Does both HDD connected to the same IDE cable?

If connected to the same IDE Cable (IDE slot):

1. Connect the Primary HDD (Master) to the end of the Cable, make sure to set the jumper to CS (Cable Select)
2. Connect the Secondary HDD (Slave) to the middle connector of the cable, make sure to set the jumper to CS (Cable Select)

Please note that there are some cases that CS cannot be automatically detected so you may need to set the jumper manually to master and slave.

Hope it works.

I only drink diluted water.

Re: Put The Hdd On Slave Mode

Hi make sure to check the jumper in your hard drive. There should be a jumper switch that so that it will tell your computer that this drive is not primary, making it secondary slave or primary slave.
