No idea what you're talking about. Do you mean "jumper"? Defribrillate? What?

How are the jumpers set on the other drive on that cable?

Does the drive appear in Device Manager?

Be sure that the IDE channel is enabled in BIOS setup. If there is another drive on the same cabe, then it already is.

Double-click the IDE controller in Device Manager and be sure both channels are enabled there.

How is the other drive on that cable, if any, jumpered?

Exactly which Firelite model and what Windows OS?
My two USB Firelites are 2.5" drives and don't have any jumpers to set.
I suggest you take a long look at the manufacturer's website, support section, especially in the unlikely event that you're using Win 98SE. The driver download needed for 98SE can vary from batch to batch for the same nominal model.

IF your Firelite is similar to my 80GB ones there's a USB/Ext switch on the back. Mine get enough power through the single USB connection but the Ext switch enables a supplementary power feed by either a supplied extra USB connector or an optional AC adapter. Have you read the User Guide on connecting these if the drive doesn't seem to power up? Is the switch in the right position? (Again, this assumes that your model is basically similar to mine).
If the drive is running, have you formatted it?
The support section at www.smartdisk.com is usually very helpful.
