  • Single, Master and Slave Drives and Jumpering



    In order to maintain order on the channel, it is necessary to have some way of differentiating between the two devices. This is done by giving each device a designation as either master or slave, and then having the controller address commands and data to either one or the other. The drive that is the target of the command responds to it, and the other one ignores the command, remaining silent.


    Note that despite the hierarchical-sounding names of "master" and "slave", the master drive does not have any special status compared to the slave one; they are really equals in most respects. The slave drive doesn't rely on the master drive for its operation or anything like that, despite the names (which are poorly-chosen--in the standards the master is usually just "drive 0" and the slave "drive 1"). The only practical difference between master and slave is that the PC considers the master "first" and the slave "second" in general terms.

    FAQ

    Customer Question: my vista computer is not recognizing my slave hard drive (jumper set to slave)

    Mfg. Answer: you have to set your drive to master jumper for adapter to work since its a single device adapter so master setting is required

    please note that master/slave setting on IDE cables has to do with position on IDE cable not boot order

    1. Surprised Review by Bob

      Price

      I had looked at several of these IDE to SATA adaptors and read reviews of cracking, poor quality, sticking out and cantilever stress breakage. I stumbled across these at Cool drives and they appeared to solve most of the problems by their vertical design. After installing on a 40 gig IDE drive for retrieving tons of files, I was amazed at the speed and clean seamless interface with SATA and Windows 7. Files transferred so quickly that I thought something had to be wrong or missing. But checking confirmed everything was there on the new hyper drive. I never new an IDE drive could transfer files that fast. These adapters are a life saver for moving files to newer technology. Well worth the money and they work very well. Cheers to Cool drives.

      Product is really a good idea for using old hard drives in newer PCs. This is especially useful since Microsoft allows their OS (starting at Win7) to be moved to newer PCs. (Posted on 8/3/2015)

      Bought a new Windows 8 intel i3 desktop with a SATA board and had a 320GB internal IDE hard drive from my old computer that I wanted to install in the new one. Adapter fit perfectly and installed in minutes. Had to set the old hard drive to auto select for the system to recognize it. (Posted on 7/10/2013)

      I have some relatively new Hard Drives and DVD burners (40 pin IDE connector) that are still in good working order. Not wanting to spend extra money on new SATA drives during computer upgrades, I found that the IDE to SATA adapter fit the bill perfectly. This adapter is a quality device and worked properly after installation. I will purchase an additional adapter or two in the future. (Posted on 10/26/2012)
