Hello there soggytundra, here's your GEEK-steer ...
Despite your question being posted here 5 days ago, I'll presume you still (and if not, then someone else will) need the answer ...
Virtually all Maxtor drives adhere to the following general rules concerning jumper settings (at least up until now):
= MASTER (M): Insert jumper over the FIRST COMPLETE pair of VERTICAL pins.
Xoo o oXooo Xooo
Xoooo Xooo Xooo
= CABE SELECT (CS): Insert jumper over the SECOND COMPLETE pair of VERTICAL pins.
oXo o oXooo oXoo
oXooo Xooo oXoo
= SLAVE (S): Do NOT insert ANY jumpers (or at least NONE VERTICALLY, but you may HORIZONTALLY across the TOP row as simply a means of storing the jumper).
ooo o ooooo oooo oooXX oooXX ooXX
ooooo oooo oooo ooooo oooo oooo
TIP: As a general rule, if you KNOW the role of the jumper capable device you're installing, it is better to NOT use Cable Select (CS). In this case you do, therefore it would be best to specifically designate the (33073H3) drive as (secondary) Slave [and your other (primary) drive as Master].
Good luck and GOD-speed. Please post back if you have any further questions, and/or just to let me (and others in similar need) know how well this steers to solution.

Select the maxtor HDD as master by setting the Jumper to the extreme left of the hdd; i.e. next to the data cable.
Remove all jumpers from the other HDD which you want to put as slave.
