Default Harddrive help!

I am putting a second harddrive in my computer. I have a cable that has two heads on it. I know which cable head to put where, to select the master and slave drive, but i dont know which jumper to select. My hard drives are identical, and they have four jumper options. They are both on the second option. Which option should i change it to if anyone knows?

Here is a picture of what jumpers they have on:

Thanks,
Andrew

You prolly won't find much support for the old Quantum drives. You are just going to have to guess.

One time by brother guessed, got it wrong, and crashed a hard drive. Is that possible with newer drives? His was like 8 years ago.

It'* a possiblity. I've never seen it happen, but I can't deny that possibility.

With any IDE device, setting the jumper settings wrong can lead to device failure. However, I have never experienced this.. nor do I really want to test it either. I have set the jumpers wrong a few times, and all my IDE devices work..
