10/20GB NS (TR-5) Internal IDE Tape Drive


The IDE configuration block pin assignments are:

 Jumper on Pins       Description
     7-8              Reserved
     5-6              MS (master)
     3-4              SL (slave)
     1-2              CS (cable select)

Set the IDE jumper ON for the setting that applies to the IDE configuration.
The tape drive is preset at the factory to slave (SL).

If the computer has one hard disk drive and one IDE controller, configure the tape drive as a slave (SL) by placing a jumper over vertical pins 3 and 4 (ON).
Some hard disk drives might require you to change its jumper setting (master to master with a slave attached) if you attach a second device to the IDE controller.

If the computer has two IDE controllers:
Place the hard disk drives on the primary IDE controller and place the other storage devices (tape drive or CD-ROM drive) on the secondary IDE controller.

If the tape drive is the only device on the secondary IDE controller, configure it as a master (MS) by placing a jumper over vertical pins 5 and 6.

If the tape drive is sharing the IDE controller with another device, configure it as slave (SL) by placing a jumper over vertical pins 3 and 4.

Refer to the computer documentation to see if the computer supports the cable select (CS) setting. Most computers do not use this feature.

The following table lists the available bays for IBM PC IntelliStation professional workstation and desktop PC models.
Some of these computer systems require an additional cosmetic bezel (included) when installing a removable media device such as a tape drive.
Some workstations also might have a lockable door covering the drive bays.
If you are installing the tape drive into any server with a lockable door, you might not be able to close this door whenever the data cartridge is inserted.

Model Bays Available

When installing in the available 3.5-inch bay in the tower model, no additional bezel is available at this time.
