INSTALLATION

Host Interface Connections

Most current mainboard models have two IDE ports (primary and secondary) which can connect two IDE cables. Two IDE cables allow you to connect up to four devices, but it is recommended that you separate IDE ports for your hard drive and your Combo drive. This will ensure that your hard drive’s performance and speed won’t be affected by having the Combo Drive on the same cable.

Jumper Setting

On the rear panel of the Combo Drive, you will find three pairs of jumpers: CS (CSEL), SL (Slave) and MA (Master). Use the jumper cap to set the device to CS, SL or MA mode corresponding to your PC configuration. If you connect only one device on the IDE cable, you can set the jumper as “Master” or “Slave”.

If you connect two devices on the same cable, set different jumper for each device (one as “Master”, and the other one as “Slave”). The same rule goes for the connection of having your hard disk and one other device on the same cable.
