Hello,
I purchased the above drive to replace my 500gb failed drive on my ms-7312 motherboard. The system will not recognize the drive, and I cannot seem to find jumper settings that will make it work. Can you help??

I'm assuming this is a secondary drive and not the OS drive. If this is the case, you need to go into "disk management" and initilaize (partition/format) the drive before it will show up in windows.

This was the primary drive. I was able to fix it by jumpering pins 7&8, then the bios was able to recognize it.
I am not sure why western digital doesn't provide this information.
