  1. Remove the cover.
  2. If your computer has a CD drive or DVD drive, you might need to remove the signal and power cables from the drive.
  3. If the drive you installed is a removable-media drive, remove the bay panel from the front bezel.
  4. Remove the metal shield from the drive bay by inserting a flat blade screwdriver into one of the slots and gently pry it loose.

  6. Make sure the drive that you are installing is set correctly as either a master or a slave device. If it is the first CD drive or DVD drive, set as a master device.
    • If it is an additional CD drive or DVD drive, set as a slave device.
    • If it is a hard disk drive, set as a slave device. Refer to the documentation that comes with your drive for master/slave jumper information.
  7. Install the drive into the bay. Align the screw holes and insert the two screws.

  8. Pivot the drive bay cage back into place.
  9. Each integrated drive electronics (IDE) drive requires two cables; a four-wire power cable that connects to the power supply and a signal cable that connects to the system board. You might also have an audio cable to connect.

    Note: The steps to connect an IDE drive are different depending on the type of drive you are connecting.
