Do I need to set the jumpers on an IDE drive if I am using an IDE to SATA converter?

Q: when using an IDE to SATA adapter to connect IDE devices to a motherboard, is it necessary to set master and slave jumpers?

  1.  

    Check the directions that came with the converter, but if there aren’t any I’d try running it as Cable Select (CS) mode and see how it goes. It’s not going to blow up or anything, worst case is a little trial and error.
