Setting the Jumpers

Set the jumpers on the rear of the drive in accordance with the
configuration of your computer system.
The illustration below shows the jumpers set to the "MASTER"
position, this is the default set by the factory.
Your computer should have a PRIMARY IDE bus and a SECONDARY IDE
bus. Each bus can have one MASTER and one SLAVE device connected to
it. Follow the configuration guidlines below for optimum performance and
• Set the CRX-160E as the MASTER device.
• The CRX-160E can be connected to either the PRIMARY or
SECONDARY bus, however if you have an IDE Hard disk on
your computer the hard disk should be set as the MASTER device
on the PRIMARY bus. Hence the CRX-160E must be set as the
PRIMARY device on the SECONDARY bus.
• Do not have a CD-ROM reader and a CD writer on the same IDE
bus (ie: both on the SECONDARY bus). This will cause problems
if copying from CD to CD.
Some personal computers may use CSEL in place of the MASTER/
SLAVE selection. In this case, remove the existing jumper from
MASTER or SLAVE, and set it on CSEL. When the CSEL is set
high, the drive is designated as Drive 1.
Consult your PC manufacturer, IDE Card manufacturer or dealer for
further details.
