external USB hard drives do not need to be jumpered, if your computer does not recognize the ext. drive probably it is because the enclosure is defective, when you connect the USB cable you should get the "ding-dong" connection sound.

If you think that your computer recognizes the hard drive then jumper it as "secondary" or "cable select" and install it INTERNALLY, then transfer your data, that will prove that there's a problem with the ext. enclosure.

One more thing, maybe the USB port you use is malfunctioning, try one that you know that works (assuming that you have other USB devices that work).

SOURCE: What is the master password for a Maxtor QuickView

In all honesty Hard drives do not have any passwords. Maybe you need to re-declre ownership of the contents inside the disk to gain access to the files.
Microsoft windows: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421
Mac os X: highlight the drive and press +i to "get info" the last patch of settings on the window is permissions add yourself to the permissions of your maxtor drive with read/write/access and apply to all enclosed items. close the window. eject the drive, re-connect and get your files.

Can I use a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 60 (5T040H4) 40.9 GB like Slave?? Thank you


Of course you can use it. Put the jumper to set the configuration as "slave" and insert the a plug from the ide cable. If you put the put the jumper to "cable select", put the slave plug and it should work great.

Use a partition manager to see if the drive is recognized. If it is not recognized, you may not have the jumper setting correct. If it is a master drive, set the jumper for master drive. same for slave or cable select

Jumper setting


Put the jumper on J50(the closest set of pins to the IDE connector)

This will set the drive to master, with no pins on it's currently set to slave.
