No jumper is necessary for a SATA drive. Just install it and the PC will assign a drive letter to it.

You can add the drive as an additional drive just by setting the drive jumper to slave with master installed and it will give you another drive letter. https://eshop.macsales.com/Tech/manuals/idehdsettings/WD72.pdf

The case must be designed for SATA drives. Once the drive is installed in the case, use a USB cable to connect it to the computer. Connect the power supply to the case and start the computer. There will be a new drive letter present.

There are pins on the Sata drive that have to be set. The good part is that there is a diagram on the device that will tell you which settings are for Master/Primary and Slave. You want to set it up as a Slave.
Sometime the connection ribbon from *********** board will have master/slave written on them. These also need to be correct depending on the computer.

The noise is probably a repeatative clunk sound. If so then afraid its no good and you will need to buy a new one. I have been using WDD hard drives for years and they are the best. If you enter the bios you will most probably see that it is detected. The clunk is the head hitting the platter. Any data on the drive will not be readable. Srri

Open My Computer icon on the desktop. locate the hard disk you wish to format in FAT32. Make sure is not your main drive where windows was installed which is Drive C: Right click on the drive you want to format and select Format, a formatting window will pop out, there you see capacity which is the size of your hard drive,File system, and so on. Select the drop down menu under File system where we have NTFS and FAT32. Set it to FAT32. Under Format Options, Select Quick format and click Start. A warning message will pop out Click Ok to proceed. Wait a moment until the formatting is complete. Good luck.

There should be jumpers on the back of both hard drives. You need to set the primary hard drive jumper to MASTER and the secondary hard drive jumper to SLAVE. Here is a picture of the jumper settings.

If you are trying to use the drive in a windows XP system you will need a driver due to the fact its a SATA drive (very few are supported by Win XP) .
You should be able to find a Windows XP driver on the Western Digital website.
At the start of the Windows XP install process you will be asked to press F6 to load SATA drivers.
If my memory serves me right you will need to have the driver on a floppy disk to install them.
This should sort your problem.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
