Good Morning: I have a laptop harddrive that I want to use as a seconardry drive in a desktop. I have the adaptor to go from a laptop to a desktop harddrive. When I put the adaptor on the laptop hd there are two rows of 2 prongs left. Are these the jumpers for the drive I see no explanation on the drive. I would like to hook them up to format them. Any suggestions?

The extra 2 rows are most likely for M (master), S (slave), or CS (cable select).

If you go to the drive manufacturers web site and look up the model of the drive, you will get the info on how to configure the jumpers.
They may be ok the way they are.

If you give us the manufacturer and model, we can also look.
