WD10EZEX compatability Tags: Configuration Motherboards Jumper Windows XP Last response: January 2, 2013 10:59 AM in Windows XP Share wcmillar December 21, 2012 3:29:20 AM 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??

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. wcmillar December 28, 2012 3:27:50 AM Hawkeye22 said:I'm assuming this is a secondary drive and not the OS 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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
