    where is the jumper on the drive ?
    and make / model of drive
    is it going in the pc in your sig ?
    if so did you look in your manual or check the manufacturers web site for an online manual or one that could be downloaded.

    As a rule, you only need to use the "limit to 1.5G" jumpering on SATAs if you're experiencing some kind of problem with detection or capacity etc.
