Cannot access slave drive

  keith78 08:38 13 Sep 2004

I have a 20G slave drive which i cannot access. I windows it shows it as a 738mb drive. When you go into the BIO, it is shown but in faint. Can any one help?

Check the jumper settings on the disk - ensure that it is set as slave and the old one is set as master.

Then go into BIOS and tell it to autodetect drives - if it is older and this is not supported, the get the details from the manufacturer.

Your C (boot drive) should be set to Master and the (now usually D) drive should be the Slave.

Some handy info on the subject at Seagate's website:
