I have a number of older drive that I keep stuff on.
A recent aquasition has a differnt jumper set up than the norm.
So far, it has refuse to be recognised by several jumper positions - any ides which is the right one.

This is the normal set up to set the drive as master for external USB use

I would go for the 2nd or Single Drive option.

Have you tried it with the *single drive* setting?

From your image that's with no jumpers attached.

Gundulf/weeeddie - I have tried that one and connected to PC via an IDE/USB cable the computer comes up as a'Faulty USB device'
Disk management does not come up with anything.
Will keep switching em around thats all I can do I guess.

Are you sure that it's not one from that box you got at the Boot Sale!

Another possibility is that there is an age/compatibility problem

Wee Eddi -- as if!
Actually its from an old Gateway of my daughters that I broke up some time ago when the machine died-
I built a new- one - well new posh case my old mother board bigger drive etc.
Took this one out intending to transfer stuff and had not got around to it until yesterday.

Just moment sago I tried the jumper Free configuration- and it fired up- so that's OK
Dunno why it would not in the first place of course as usual.
