A slave drive is defined by removing the jumper (pin sleeve) completely from the drive. Then go into your BIOS and if it doesn't auto-detect as slave, manually change the settings and you'll be good. You shouldn't have to go into your BIOS.

If you can see it as slave in BIOS, but not in Windows that means the drive is not formatted properly and to do so, Right click on My Computer in Windows and goto Manage. It should load the Computer Management window. From there goto Disk Management under Storage in the left side browser. You should see the Hard Drive there, right click on that and format it.

That should do it.

I dont know how to set jumpers to work as a slave


Just look for the little plastic squares that slide onto two pins. They will be where you you plug the cable and power into the hard drive.
There should be a diagram on the label. If not, you can look at the bottom of the hard drive - right by the pins, and you should see SL, CS..... in small text on the green board. This is for SLave, Cable Select........

Go to the maxtor website for more details.

HD not being detected


Sounds to me its a bad hard drive. Set it as slave and install it into another PC with enough empty hard drive space to copy all needed files. Try to observe also your hard drive if there's any clunking sounds and if it does any, eventually that drive of yours is just waiting the right time to give in.

Back up your files as soon as possible.
