Western Digital jumper configuration

by loren / October 7, 2004 9:13 AM PDT

I am going to be changing the configuration on an XP machine and need to know where to put the jumper on the hard drive if there is going to be a DVD drive added as a slave to the same cable??
It is a Western Digital 40GB drive and is new.

Thanks for the help in advance.

I agree, cable select is the way to go. My 60 gig WD has a lable on top and cable select is jumper 1 and 2, closest to the power connector.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
