Idiots guide - external HD set-up (Icy Box)?

  pc_sausage 21:21 10 Mar 2006


can anyone help me with an idiot's guide to setting up a 160gb seagate drive (IDE) in an Icy Box enclosure?

What is the jumper?

What do I do to make sure it's on 'Master'?

What do I do to format it once it's all set-up & plugged in?

Think I may be geting there.

I couldn't work out the master jumpr thingy, so assumed the default setting would be okay.

Currently formatting a 20gb partition of the 160gb drive (with NTFS - am using XP only).

Will shout back if I get stuck again, so will leave thread open until I'm 100% sure it's okay.
