Abstract A swap bay device for a portable computer with a swap bay has a mode selection switch for selectively setting its operation mode. If the swap bay device is installed in a portable computer supporting one IDE (integrated drive electronics) interface channel, it is set to a slave mode by the mode selection switch. If installed in a portable computer supporting two IDE interface channels, the swap bay device is set to a master slave mode by the switch. Since one swap bay device can be set to a master or slave mode, it can be applied to both the portable computer supporting one and two IDE interface channels. Thus, inventory management of the swap bay device can efficiently done.
