I see on the label of the Harddisk , it said , Cable Select for Master/Slave. Does anyone explain me When should I use this type of setting?

P.S. Sorry if the question is not in the topic I write to , because I don't know which topic I should ask for this question.

Thanks in advances.

you shouldn't use it at all unless the comp requires it.. only certain prepritory system ie IBM,compaq use this setting   most comps use only the master jumper or if you want it as a slave to another HD set it to slave position  only use the cable select jumper setting if the comp wont reconize the HD,,,,,most cases just set it to master and auto detect in setup/bios  (most western digital HD require no jumper for master setting if its the only HD installed but all else  require master jumper setting....very few cases require cable select
