i dont think is is, would that be in the bios? cuz i dont even think i can find it there but ill check
 
Nope, edited my post, it is a set of pins on the back of the drive.

This is not your drive, but should be similar. the jumper needs to be under the MA or MASTER section. In some cases, just removing it will work as well
