    These settings are designated on the hard drive

    Master is the primary device for a specific IDE Channel

    Slave is the secondary device for a specific IDE Channel

    Cable select is utilizes the position on the cable to designate whether the device is considered the Master or Slave of the channel. Top position - Master Second position - Slave

    Hope this helps!!
