A Few Jumper Questions

  gplatt2000 12:40 09 Aug 03

Hi there, I was wondering, does the orientation of the jumper on the pins matter (ie, does it matter which way round it is?), and aslo, the (old) HD I am trying to setup for a friend has no diagram to show jumper settings, so which is the most common location for them (to set as master)? Thanks a lot in advance, Gavin

The jumper is just bit of metal for connecting to pins together there fore not polarity sensitve.

Some drives have no jumper for master selection others have pin 1 and 2 (nearest the power plug) for master only. Quite often there is a diagram on the drive itself.

Come back and let us know if you get stuck.

Thanks ppl , I will have a try a bit later on, I think the drive is a Fujitsu though??? ButI will try different settings, Doesn't hlp that there are no markings on the mobo to show IDE1 and IDE2, so I have to try different positions. Anyway, thanks a lot for your help, Gavin
