    Hi

    I have a %title% hdd in my comp, and according to several reviews seagate has configured it to have a default 1.5gb/sec jumper.

    1. How do I check what I have?
    2. How do I change to 3gb/sec?

    Thanks.

    Take off a jumper from a place like this, if there is a jumper: http://techreport.com/r.x/seagate-barracuda-es2/jumper.jpg


    Quote: Large and fast. The first thing you have to know is the drive comes limited to 1.5 Gbits per second. By removing the jumper you allow the drive to auto-negotiate up to 3.0 Gbits per second. Google Seagate's manual ""100452348b.pdf"" and cruise to the top of page 20. All is explained in the PDF. Pull the jumper and NOW you have some serious speed !!!

    I am forever grateful to you. I've found that little thing (it's much further in than what you believe after watching that picture) and I'm going to remove it as soon as I can (my HDD isn't easy to remove, and there's a PSU in the way.

    But thanks!
