Are you mounting it as the only drive or with another one... if you are mounting it as a slave usually you don't need a jumper... the jumper setting will hopefully be on the sticker.

xp and up will autodect the drive..

5T020h2 jumper setup


No jumper is used on the J50 pins, when using the Maxtor 5T020H2 IDE harddrive, as a Slave harddrive.

In otherwords do not use a jumper on any of the jumper pins.

This is a PDF file of the Harddrive Specifications of the 5T020H2, 5T010H1, 5T030H3, 5T040H4, and 5T060H6 Maxtor IDE harddrives,
from Seagate. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)

http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/maxtor/en_us/documentation/manuals/dm_plus_60_ultra_ata_manual.pdf



The Jumper Settings are in Chapter 2, Page 5 (2-5)
Looking at the page number for the PDF file it's on Page 15.

Someone just gave me a maxtor hard drive model 5TO20H2 how do i check to see whats on it. i may want to keep it as my master because i have no space on the hard drive im using and my windows is a pirate...


you can install it as a "slave" harddrive by connecting it on the second spot on the IDE ribon (grey looking connection , connecting to first harddrive). but before you do that, you have to change to "jumper" to match the "slave" on the back of the second hard drive. then connecting it. so where you turn the computer on, the system wil see it as a second hard drive and u can see what is in it. and use it as a storage if need to be,

Need jumper settings for both hard drives. PCb board has been replaced. Cannot rememebr the orgional settings.


Master (M) on the harddrive that came with the computer, Slave, (S, or SL), on the 2nd harddrive.

Don't see M, S, and CS, on the label of the harddrive? (CS is Cable Select)
Sometimes it's right on the edge, where the 40 pin flat ribbon cable plugs in. It will be letters raised in the plastic, of the harddrive body.

To find where to set the jumpers for these harddrives, I suggest you look at the label. Since you had the Printed Circuit board replaced, I'm guessing you know who made it, and what the model number is.

Some harddrive manufacturers,
1.Western Digital
2.Maxtor, (Maxtor is owned by Seagate now)
3.Seagate
4.Hitachi
5.NEC (No longer in business)
6.Quantum, (sold out to Maxtor)

Here are three links that are videos, and may help with setting jumpers, and setting up those IDE harddrives. (IDE is also referred to as EIDE, ATA, and PATA)
(If you have SATA harddrives, do not touch the jumpers, if any are present! These are for the factory. With a SATA harddrive, you can plug it/them, into ANY available SATA header, {Connector}, on the motherboard. Doesn't matter!)
