Installing the Drive
Before installing the drive, please note the following points.
You will need the following:
• A screw driver of a suitable size to fit the securing screws for the drive unit.
• The manual for the computer, so you can find the mounting positions for the
IDE controller cable.
Turn off all peripheral appliances of the computer and the computer itself, and
disconnect their power cords from the wall sockets.
Discharge any static electricity on your person by touching the computer covers, etc.
Removing the Computer Cover
Make sure all peripheral devices of the computer and the computer itself are turned
off, and then remove the cover. Refer to the manual for the computer for details about
removing the cover.
NOTE : There may be sharp edges inside the computer so take care to avoid injury.
Mounting the Drive
1. Remove the 5
/4" drive bay panel from the computer. Refer to the manual for the
computer for details.
2. Insert the drive unit into the bay. Do not apply excessive pressure to the cables
inside the computer.
3. Secure the drive with the screws. If there is not enough space behind the drive,
connect the IDE and other cables before securing the drive.
Before installation, set the jumper connector on the rear panel.
The drive can be connected as the Master or Slave on an EIDE (ATAPI) interface.
When several (up to four) EIDE devices are connected, each must be set in a unique
way. Specific knowledge of hardware and software is necessary to install the drive.
