|Agreed, the manufacturer typically uses the jumper settings 'cable select' which is fine when all drives are set that way and they have a clear plan for which cable connector goes to which drive. You SHOULD reset all drives as to how you are using them. You can have One master and One slave per cable. Your boot drive needs to be Master on one cable and the CD drive needs to be Master on the other cable. All other hard drives need to be Slave jumper settings. Most drives have a jumper chart on the label, for all others Google the brand name and the words "Jumper Settings" to see a chart.|
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
