    My daughters computer went belly up. I bought a MSI motherboard and would like to use the drives I already have. Two 20 gig's, One Maxtor one WD.

    Where does one go to find the pin sets for these?

    it is going to be possible to use the two drives, right?

    Western Digital drives have a different jumper setting if it's not alone on its own cable...if it's master, you'll cover pins 5/6 and 1/2....if it's slave, you'll cover pins 1/2 and 3/4......
