Question about Computers & Internet
There are two open pins. Do I jump them for cable
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
