Question about Maxtor Computers & Internet
It (the maxtor hard drive) appears to be in both local disk "c" and "d" and with very different values of free space. now, my "e" drive or slave drive is fine but my dvd drive is not present. though its on and plugged in. and previously worked. my thought was ...the jumpers were incorrect? i am using a asus with a intel dual core. and using sata for the dvd, but the hard drives are using ide interface connections. is that too much information? i just want to put the jumpers on correctly for my set up here, i swear
That is not a hardware problem, rather it is a software problem. What you have done is partitioned your hard disk into two different partitions on one single drive which causes it to be both C and D. What you should do is go to partition manager, shrink the unused volume, then expand the other volume. But relating to your DVD issue, check that the DVD drive is receiving adequate power and that it's plugged into the SATA slot correctly. Also check microsoft support for the automatic Mr.Fixit solutions if you believe its a software problem

I assume you have two IDE controllers? IDE1 and IDE2, I'll try to help, the primary HD needs to have the pin set to primary and the secondary set to slave, if you're running both of these drives off of the same ribbon cable. You may have to go into your BIOS settings and check to make sure the Primary HD is the WD drive.

There are no master/slave settings on SATA drives because each drive has its own cable. The drive order is determined by what SATA port they are plugged into, or by the BIOS configuration.
