Answers :

Connect second harddisk as slave as you mentioned using the jumper setting from the manual or on the harddisk. Make sure the master harddisk jumper setting for "Master with Slave present " . Connect the power supply cable. Most of the computer operating system's would detect the new harddisk once pluged in. If the new harddisk needs formatting before use format it before you can use it. \015\012\011To format the new harddisk right click the new drive letter form "My computer " window and click format. Select appropriate type for the formatting new harddisk. You can access the new drive now to store you files.
