well darn, little help please?
ok, computer is finished, now there are a few problems it would seem, namely the hard drive is not being found.
now I am using a fujitsu 40gb 2.5" hard drive. and Im also using an adaptor... laptop to IDE. there is only one kind of adaptor right??? I couldnt have the wrong kind could I?
I plugged the ide cable from the blue IDE socket on my nforce MOBO, to the dvd drive(as primary slave) and then the last plug on the cable went to the hard drive... as primary master.
however on the back of the hd, there is a set of 40 prongs, well 39 I think actually, that middle one is not there. and then there are 2 more prongs over to the side? what are those for? am I supposed to put jumpers on them? new egg gave me NOTHING for instructions, so right now I just have those 4 prongs open to the breeze. any idea what jumper settings I should be using to make that a master drive?
please help me out, its SOOO close, but I need the hard drive to make it that last step!!!
