So I got a old PATA Seagate 80 GB HD that were getting a enternal Hard drive enclosure for off ebay.

Anyway it was installed in a Dell desktop, I plan to hook it up to a computer to take some stuff off it, then format it to use as a external drive for a Bell 6131 receiver.

What would be the correct position for the jumper block pin (see link), it is currently on 5/6 cable select which is how it was configured for the dell desktop.

Thanks

OK bought a cheap 8 dollar enclosure off eBay, I hooked it up and took some info off the drive, then changed the jumper pin and hooked it up up to the 6131, it self formatted and works perfect!! I got 71 hours of SD. Cheap way to get a external Hard Drive for SD con tent 6131.
