    Please be more clear with the problem? Are you talking about MASTER/Slave jumper settings?

Not enough information , I need to know the exact model number.

normaly Maxtor prints the jumper information on the drive , or on the circuit board bottom where the jumpers are located , CS = cable select , M = Master , S or SL = Slave

I seem to prefure cable select , because if it fails I can blame the computer industry

many people prefure to HARD SET the drive as master or slave because of their past dealings with SCSI hard drive jumper termination settings , they need to relax a bit and use the new CS cable select feature.

don't worry about using 2 jumpers , thats normaly for cylinder size limmitation for older motherboards that required a little bit lower size


cheer up , Samsung have made whats called a SSD hard drive , solid state drive which will replace these mechanical pieces of **** we use today called a hard drive. and already have as of 2008
but must be ran in pairs to get the most out of them thats what you call an ugly drawback

be glad you don't have to deal with the 20/20 winchester hard drives which were about 10 to 20MB
and sounded like a jet air craft ... lol

These are truely exciting times in the computer industry , they are a cross roads in technology
but with that comes ugly stuff too.

SOME hard drives required no jumpers at all , but the diamond max 10 is one that does

And to finaly answer your question properly YES jumper the drive for CS cable select

Hope I wasn't too much of a geek for ranting but hey you sound like a hardware monkey like myself

Remember if it's not hebrew , it's a lie :-> shalom

What is the jumper pin placement to make a slave of a DiamondMax Plus 9, 80GB hard drive?


The manual is linked below and section 3.3.1 covers jumper settings.
The slave setting shows the park position so you have a jumper on the drive so you can reconfigure it later.

A quick answer is that the slave setting is no jumper at all on the jumper pins.

Can I use a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 60 (5T040H4) 40.9 GB like Slave?? Thank you


Of course you can use it. Put the jumper to set the configuration as "slave" and insert the a plug from the ide cable. If you put the put the jumper to "cable select", put the slave plug and it should work great.

Jumper settings for a maxtor N256 master with slave


Select the maxtor HDD as master by setting the Jumper to the extreme left of the hdd; i.e. next to the data cable.
Remove all jumpers from the other HDD which you want to put as slave.

PC will not see Maxtor 80GB DiamondMax Plus 9 as seconary slave.


Hi,

Two thing,

First, never use a Maxtor HDD as a slave to a CDROM/DVD, doesn't work and tends to cause stability issues. So try swapping the jumper on the CD/DVD to slave and setting the Maxtor to Master, this should get it working.

Second, if it is showing up as 33GB, you have the Jumpers set to limit capacity(designed to avoid troubles on older systems. If this is the case, you likely have a single jumper in the center row of pins between the power and data cables. If it only works as master at the moment, then you likely have the neter row(limit size pins) and the one closest to the data cable(Master Pin) both plugged in.

Change your DVD/CD to slave, remove the limiting jumper and ensure the Master jumper is installed on the Maxtor, then be sure the end connector on the ATA(likely marked master) is plugged into the Maxtor and the middle connector(Slave) is plugged into the DVD/CD, this should have you all fixed up.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Maxtor 500 gig internal diamondmax 21


external USB hard drives do not need to be jumpered, if your computer does not recognize the ext. drive probably it is because the enclosure is defective, when you connect the USB cable you should get the "ding-dong" connection sound.

If you think that your computer recognizes the hard drive then jumper it as "secondary" or "cable select" and install it INTERNALLY, then transfer your data, that will prove that there's a problem with the ext. enclosure.

One more thing, maybe the USB port you use is malfunctioning, try one that you know that works (assuming that you have other USB devices that work).
