And I had one box that required the drive to be set to "single", a

wee bit of goggleration.

That setting is also called 'Master' on a lot of drives. In which case
there's usually another one called 'Master with slave present'.

On a WD drive of this vintage, Master, Slave, and CS were all shown on
the drive. Single was a separate, different setting. Busted my brain
for an hour or so :-)

Had one of those, longe time ago.
Yep, in that case 'single' means 'Master w/o slave'.

You'd think they would agree on a simple, uniform notation...

The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
