Power comes from the power supply. Check yellow and black and red and black. You need both 5v and 12v. Are you sure you have the jumper set correctly for the application? Master or single - master with slave present or some computers require CS (cable select)

SOURCE: which are the slave pins on Maxtor diamondMax Plus

Look for a grid of gold-coloured pins between the power-connector and the data-connector.
Look CLOSELY at the engraving on the top of the disk-drive, near those pins,
looking for 'MA(ster)' or 'SL(ave)' or 'C(able)S(elect)'.

Or, especially for MAXTOR drives, read the text printed on the label on the top of the disk,
for the "pairs" of pins that need to be set.

Maxtor DiamondMax 11 is a SATA Hardisk and you need SATA External Case. After adding the Harddisk, all you have to do is connect it to the system via the cable of the external case. There is no need for additional drivers/ CD as all the external harddisks are 'plug and play'and the Operating System detects them automatically.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Hard drive spins up but windows does not see it


Depending on your PC make model and BIOS it may not auto recognize the second drive, check those settings. and or it might not support the drive size, in which case look for a BIOS update for your system. You also might want to use "cable select" on the switches even though you set it to slave it may not like that.

HDD unable to detect at My Computer


Well first I would pull the hard drive out of the case. I would then get a USB to IDE/SATA drive cable. I would connect the drive not being able to be detected to another computer via USB.

If it works the drive is still good but the data might be corrupt. If the data is corrupt I would be sure to get any stuff you can off of it and basically reformat and reload.

What new HDD will match my Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8?


Mark,
You can use any size HDD in your computer as a slave and it does not have to be an exact match for the maxtor. You will however need the make sure that the connections on the new drive match. For example SATA drives will not attache to an IDE cable and vice versa. The drive that you mentioned is an IDE style drive so unless your MOBO has SATA connectors on it you will need to buy an IDE/EIDE drive.
