Many goof the drive jumpers on today's hardware. Today, I set the devices to all CABLE SELECT and the master or slave is determined by which connector I connect it to.
Hope this helps.
Can anyone help me? Im building a new computer now I don?t know how to configure it to work properly. The motherboard (a ASUS P5GDC Delux) has only one IDE bus, and two RAID buses (one primary and one secondary). I have a Maxtor 300 GB Hard Drive (ATA) and a Memorex DVD Burner. When I connect both the Hard Drive and the DVD Burner to the IDE, one as Master the other as slave, the the HD light stays on for "too" long while booting, and it doesn?t detect my Hard Drive. How should I connect the drives to work properly. I?ve tried different ways, both RAID, both IDE, one RAID the other IDE, etc. OR do I only need to know a trick for configuring the BIOS? I?ve tried different things there too.
