Help w/Master/Slave problem..



New Member
On most drives i've seen, Master was the right-most set of pegs in the three (i.e ::| )

but on the DVD-ROM I have, it's the other way around. (i.e |:: )

It's on the secondary IDE, so I assume the left-most set of pegs is the master. I was just wondering where slave would be on those three sets of pegs.

It should have it labelled in the back if you look closely. Slave will be labeled SLA.

PIII 650 @806
Abit BH6 rev. 1.01
Diamond Viper 770
256 MB RAM
SB Live value
Olicom 10/100 NIC
Sigma Designs DVD Decoder
Matsushita 5x DVD ROM
Ricoh 7060A CD/RW
13.6 gig IBM 14 GXP
30.7 gig Maxtor DM+ 45


The manufacturers site will usually have a diagram that shows the Master/Slave/CableSelect jumper positions, too.

It wasn't labeled as far as I could tell, I looked pretty close. As for looking for a label on the top, I can't because the DVD-ROM is on the very top, so I couldn't look at it without removing it. I don't know who manufactured the drive either because my whole system was pre-made by Dell
