Internal HDD/ External case.
I want to use a internal Seagate Barracuda 7200 80 gb hdd with a external case, power supply, and USB connection. Does the hdd jumper have to be set( what setting ) ,or should i not use any jumper at all. It has an on\off switch
so it will not be running all the time, but there is no fan. Your thoughts.

I thought that the jumpers were to be set to Master for the external hard drives.

This is what i do not know. This is an empty case and i have to supply the hard drive. I could experament , but once the hdd is installed it's a tight fit, and fragile.

Can't properly answer your question, but my experience with notebook 2.5" drives in a usb case is that I could just leave them jumpered as master and they worked. I'd leave your drive jumpered as Master; it's 90% likely to work right off that way.

I have left them as Master for both 3.5" and 2.5"-no issues.

Apparently you only need a fan if your enclosure is plastic...aluminium cases dissipate heat pretty well so most don't have/need one.
