i have a seagate 420mgs and a another hard drive the name slips me for now but its a 1.6 i think its a seagate also neither has a dip switch to use as a master or slave iset it up as two masters and the bios let me. it ran ok but it seems to be getting alot of lock ups is this because i use them as two masters?Or is there a switch inside of the hard drive cover i should look for.Can it be set up this way or am i wrong and should just run it with one?I have a cdrom set as a slave off the first hard drive,As i said it runs but for the constant lock ups

Usually you should have jumper settings that can be set.
But since it seems you have each hard drive master on a different bus, you shouldn't have any problems with it.
I am not sure why your system is locking up, but it may not be related to your drive settings....

You may want to check Seagates page for info on the drive settings. I was quite impressed with the info available on my Seagate drives.

Hope this helps,

It will be helpful to know more about your computer.
What is the operating system, CPU, RAM, free HDD space, etc.?
