  1. Recently one of our older computers was running out of hard drive space. To add more hard drive space i took another hard drive to use as a secondary drive. i connected the secondary drive and tried to rebood. I was not happy to see that the computer was not recognizing either hard drives. I tried changing the jumper around or whatever and it still wasn't working properly. I decided to abort and remove the secondary hard drive. It didn't recognized that hard drive either. I had no idea what to do. I took a hard drive out of my pesonal computer and put it in. It didn't recognize it either. I put the hard drive back into my personal computer and it did the same thing!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!

    You can't just "whatever" the jumpers.
    Put the original drive back in with the original jumper setting. If you tell us more about the hardware we might be able to set this up properly.
