Default Jumper question on my 500gb Seagate 7500rpm 16mb cache UPDATE! need some more help

Hi I just got my hardrive in and I was wondering if I should leave the plug in on the jumper. Does it not matter at all? The Pc will only have only one drive for the moment. I later plan to add a small raptor drive. If I leave the plug in will it force the drive to transfer data at a rate of1.5gb/s instead of 3 gb/s?

Does your board support SATA2? If not then removing the jumper will not increase data transfer rates, on the other hand if your board does support SATA2 then there is no reason to limit your data transfer rate to 1.5GB/s by leaving the jumper there.

You answered your own question, take the jumper off. (assuming you have read the jumper config correctly and jumper off is 3GB/s)

Just to add some deffinate proof to take it off, he is a picture from Seagate's website:



I'm assuming your hard drive is a seagate, as I think I see the logo on that drive. If it is not seagate, it may be different. If so, let us know.

Update: Big Problem!
Installed the drive on my computer and heard it fire up no problem.
Formatted the drive to NTFS not PAL
The drive is only showing up as 127gb and I have no idea why
Please shed some light on how to correct this!
thanks again guys
