What is the problem you're having with this drive, I have the same drive.  Just curious.
Superior storage. Superior surveillance.

WD Purple drives are built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition security systems. With support for up to 8 hard drives and 32 cameras, WD Purple drives are optimized for surveillance.

Micropolis went out-of-bussines in the start of this year.

If you (still) need jumper settings i can send you them as gif formatted pictures.  But first tell us what type of 3243 drive you have : normal, wide scsi, differential scsi, the AV bersion ?
Are there any letters following the 3243 ? w, av,wd, wav ?

For who is this last comment meant ?

You gave the points to MadCat.  If you want me (joopv) to react to your question you had to reject the proposed answer from MadCat and ask me to propose an answer.  Since you accepted the answer from MadCat i was in the opinion that he had helped you enough and did not need additional response.

I checked the web page provided by MadCat and it contains all the jumper information you need to get it working.  If you are still having trouble please tell so in a new question and we will try to help you further.
