Blue 500GB IDE error message

I have an older pc desktop that im using in my video jukebox.I do not connect it to the internet.My problem is my C drive is full so i want to add this 500GB to it.My pc is a IDE hardrive.When i plug it in i get this message in pic.I restarted it and it goes right back to the same error.Any suggestions on a fix

May be you can check which is boot drive? And jumper setting?

if you’re adding another IDE drive that is not the Boot Drive then you need to change the jumper pin on the 500GB to Slave ie. done in most cases by simply removing the jumper.


what does that jumper do because nothing connects to it

i took the pin out of the jumper and i still get the same message

Boot into your PC’s BIOS setting and make sure you’re booting to the correct drive.

Most PC’s you press DEL while the computer is booting up to get into the BIOS.

(Some manufacturers use different keys for BIOS Booting eg. Esc, Delete, F1, F2, F10, F11, or F12 … it should say this at the booting/post black screen before the PC boots)

It will list the hard drive model numbers and which ones are Master and Slave.

It comes up but doesnt stay
