I have a maxtor quantum fireball plus as 20.5 hard drive. i want to set it to slave. how do i set the jumpers?


on maxtor drives, you will find the jumper within a cluster of 9 pins. if you look on the bottom of the drive, on the circuit board, the pins should be labeled "ms" "cs" and such. the "ms" and "cs" stand for "master" and "cable select". you rarely use the true "slave" setting anymore, more often than not' "slave" drives are set to "cable select" and are attached to the middle, slave position on the ide cable. in "cable select" mode, the cable decides what device is master and what is slave, depending upon the devices' position on the ide cable.

to set the drive to "slave", set the jumper so that it only has 1 pin under it, and doesnt actually jump any pins, or just take the jumper out. only use the "slave" setting if the "master" device on the same ide cable is actually set to "master".

if the master device is actually set to "cable select" then you will have to set the slave device also to "cable select" and the middle position on the ide cable will set it automatically to be a slave. , instead of using the jumper to make it the "slave".

to set the drive as "cable select", which is what i would recommend, use the jumper to connect the 2 pins which are labeled "cs", the 2nd position from the bottom position on most older maxtor drives, and attach this hard drive to the middle connector of the ide cable.

> Quantum 13Gb FIREBALL CX

What is printed on the labels on the top of each disk?
What is the model-number?
Do a GOOGLE-search on that model-number, to see what others have written about that model,
including the "specifications".

Quantium 10.2 gb fireball CX10A011 specs. ie sectors, mode, etc.


The specifications to enter the information manually, are on top of the harddrive. Kind of hard to discern, huh? That's because harddrive sizes from 6.4GB through 20.4GB are listed on top.
C/H/S = Cylinders/Heads/Sectors
The Quantum Fireball CX10A011 hardrive is a 10.2GB harddrive.
You will see -> C/H/S....10.2 - 16383/16/63 on top.

That is ,
16,383 Cylinders
16 Heads
63 Sectors

As for the 40GB model, it should be similar. If not, come back and post.
