• Master with non-ATA compatible slave: Use this setting if the slave
drive is not recognized. Configure the master drive with a jumper set on
pins 5 and 6 and pins 7 and 8 to enable this option.
• Cable select: Computers that use cable select to determine the master
and slave drives by selecting or
deselecting pin 28, CSEL, on
the interface bus. To enable
cable select, set a jumper on
pins 5 and 6.
• Alternate capacity jumper:
Drives with a 40-Gbyte capacity
or greater are limited to 32
Gbytes. Use this jumper only if
you have a legacy system with a
BIOS that does not support
large capacity disc drives. When
using the alternate capacity
• Manager software is required to
achieve the drive’s full capacity.
Attaching cables and mounting the drive
1. Attach one end of the drive interface cable to the interface connector
on your computer’s motherboard (see your computer manual for connector
Caution. Align pin 1 on the motherboard connector with pin 1 on your
drive connector. Pin 1 is marked by a stripe on one side of the
2. Secure the drive using four 6-32 UNC mounting screws in either the
side-mounting or bottom-mounting holes. Insert the screws no more
than 0.20 inches (5.08 mm) into the bottom-mounting holes and no
more than 0.14 inches (3.55 mm) into the side-mounting holes.
Note. Do not overtighten the screws or use metric screws. This may damage
3. Attach the interface connector and the power connector to the drive.
Configuring the BIOS
Close your computer case and restart your computer. your computer may
automatically detect your new drive. If your computer does not automatically
detect your new drive, follow the steps below.
a. Restart your computer. While the computer restarts, run the System
Setup program (sometimes called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is usually
done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC, or F1 during
the startup process.
b. Within the System Setup program, instruct the system to auto detect
your new drive.
c. Enable LBA and UDMA modes, if available and then save the settings
and exit the Setup program.
When your computer restarts, it should recognize your new drive. If your
system still doesn’t recognize your new drive, see the troubleshooting section
on the back of this sheet.

Note. When configuring two ATA devices on
the same cable, both must use Cable
Select or both must use Master/Slave
jumper settings. If using a standard
40-pin cable, the master and slave
drives can be placed in any position. If
using a 40-pin 80-conductor cable, attach
the blue connector to the motherboard,
the black connector to the master drive
and the grey connector to the slave.

I guess I have tried everything short of paying tons of money and its not worth that. Computer recognized old drive in BIOS started new one in safe mode but on my computer it did not appear. Tried it as single master with nothing else hooked up and computer recognized it but could not start in safe mode. Didn't take it apart because I am sure that would not be succesful.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP - I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME AND EFFORT

At the command prompt, try typing D:dir and press Enter...Does this show a directory of the drive?
Again, at the command prompt, type D:chkdsk /r...note the space between chkdsk and /...and press Enter
Do either of these options work?

First I put the XP disk in.
Second I Entered setup mode well booting not the bios
Three I told it to boot from cd
Fourth make sure it's set to do so by going into the bios and checking to see if your cd is set to boot
Fifth boot and I can't quite remeber (ask a staff I guess) but a command promp should come up and type if I remeber chkdsk and a checker shoudl run to see if anyfiles from windows are missing
Sixth then type when that is done chkdsk /repair and that should run and find anyfiles from windows missing and replace them.
Like I said I'm not sure if you knew this already or have tried it or even applies to your problem keep working with the staff I guess hope I was of some help.
