2.5" and 3.5" jumper differences
Are there any differences between jumpers? Specifically, I need a jumper for a 2.5" HD. I have several jumpers from previous 3.5" HD. Are they compatible? If not, guess I will have locate one at a repair shop. I know that Mac HDs aren't supposed to need jumpersnbut this one drive works when in a computer but won't work in an external enclosure (And I have verified the enclosure is in working order). In either my PB or iBook, the HD ribbon is long enough to include the 4 'jumper' pins while the HD ribbon for the external leaves the jumper pins uncovered. I've never heard of a HD what would not work in an enclosure before.
Is this a good question?
