I there... Are you shure it is a CP3106? I've only found information on the CP3104... no CP3106.

If it's the only drive you use, the juppers must be set to MASTER if your drive is alone on the bus controller. If there is a CD-ROM or something like that, be sure that the jumpers are SLAVE/MASTER or MASTER/SLAVE (not both in the same position).
In BIOS settings, just choose autodetect.

I really hate to trash someones proposed answer, I wish you would reread it and then change it to a comment.

"the juppers must be set to MASTER if your drive is alone on the bus controller."
Most older systems could only handle being set as master if there was a slave hooked up too. They had a default setting when used alone, this is something you should check out before posting as the only solution.

"In BIOS settings, just choose autodetect"
I guess I must have only worked on junk but I have never seen a 386 that the CMOS had a autodetect. I guess I must have missed that.


Arjen
Please reject that unresearched answer, it would be of little help to you.

Well Thank you for all your comments.

Let me make a few things clear here.

First of all it is a CP3106. There is an official label on it. Further I saw on one site that you could order it as well. It's a challnge to find this one on the net!!! I too could only find information about the cp3104 (I guess it's more common.

This Bios settings don't have a autodetect option. You must fill something in by pressing space. For example 33-100mb, 01-10mb. I tried several of these option but I am not sure the jumpers are correct.
Jumpers can be se to HSP, C/O, DSP and
ACT.

Well the CP3106 and the CP3104 are the same size and the same jumpers, why not try the settings for the CP3104?

compmaniaI agree with you but I wanted to make sure before I stated that, it makes me wonder why there are three different model numbers for a HD of the same size, and if you notice at the URL I posted they sell refurbished HD's and the CP3106 was $10 higher then the CP3104, make me wonder what is different.

CON      CP3101   3.5 HH      IDE     104        $115.00
CON      CP3104   3.5 HH      IDE     104        $115.00
CON      CP3106   3.5 HH      IDE     104        $125.00

The setting are the same as the CP3104, maybe we should e-mail the site and ask them what is different.

None of your choices.

The choices you have selected are for standard hard drives eg 10 Mb, 20 MB etc.  You can probably scroll through your bios settings and see if you can find one that corresponds exactly to the size, cylinders, heads and sector settings of your drive.

If not successful you can possibly manually enter those settings into your bios.  These are sometimes at the last drive choice settings in your bios.  If you can't find  a choice or manually enter the settings post back to EE.
