There should be a diagram on your drive that shows jumper locations.

I need the jumper positions f9or the maxtor 256


I'd need a better model number, however the general jumper for most maxtor drives is J50 on = master, off = slave or cable select.
/j50 is usually closest to the data cable and the jumper goes on vertically.

I want to add another hard drive and need to know how to set the jumpers on my maxtor 90645d3 please help.ty


if you want to boot from this drive, please set the jumper to the master position.

if this drive is for additional storage, please set the jumper to slave. and make sure 1st hard drive is set to master.

if this is the only drive in the system, please set the jumper to single or remove the jumper.

there will be a chart telling you which pins are for which setting in the jumper area, which is between the data plug and the power plug on the back of your HDD.

main thing that will cause drives to not work is 2 jumpers on the same cable and they both are set to the same thng.. i.e. master/master or slave/slave. also, if one is set to single drive it will likely bypass the slave drive.

What are the jumper pins on my Maxtor 6l200m0 and 6l200s0 sata drives for?


To control how the computer separates and assigns the drive's working order and placement.

The most basic positions are:

Master - By default the motherboard will boot to this drive first, therefore it's the "master"

Slave- What it sounds like. It's under the "Master" and isn't booted by default.

Cable Select (CS) - What it sounds like as well. The cable that goes from the motherboard to the hard drives. There are TWO positions at which the cable connects to the drives based on their placement. That placement determines which drive is master and which is slave. The advantage of this mode is it's ease of use. (Use only when you've got two hard drives)

That's the basics of the basics. There is A LOT more to those jumpers...but you won't ever need to know what so don't ask ;)

Let me know if you have any other questions.

The first jumper goes up and down on the two pins just beside the IDE cable slot and the other jumper goes across the top two pins next to it
