Question about Maxtor 7Y250M0 250GB Serial ATA 7200rpm 8MB Hard Drive, OEM (DSMXSATA250G8M)
My drive has no diagram where to place the "pin sleeve" to make it a slave
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.
