We use a stand alone--single drive and a Jukebox with two drives. Both drives in the Juke box have 15 dips off and the #1 switch closest to the rear, switched on. The Standalone drive has all switches off. Our drives use terminators on the cable connectors on the rear of the drives.

NEED JUMPER SETTINGS FOR MASTER HARD DRIVE


Set The Jumper Setting On Your Hard Disk Drive

The hard disk drive will be detected as 32 GB if the jumper is set to the 32 GB clip pin setting. The common jumper settings for Samsung hard disk drives are listed below. Please check the label on your hard disk drive for the correct jumper setting.

Important: Use the alternate jumper setting listed below under General Pin Setting. After changing the jumper, partition and format your hard disk drive.

Configuring your Hard Disk Drive (Master, Slave, or Cable Select) - Setting the Jumper

If this is the only HDD in your computer, set the pin setting to Master.
If this is the second HDD in your computer, set the pin setting to Slave.
If this is the second HDD in your computer, and the first drive is set to Cable Select, set the pin setting to Cable Select.
If you are replacing the HDD in your computer, set the jumper setting to match that of the drive you are replacing.

Cable Select:

This setting is the default setting for PATA/IDE hard disk drives. With the Cable Select jumper setting, the BIOS determines whether a hard disk drive is Set as Master or Set as Slave by it's position on the UDMA cable.
If the hard disk drive jumper is set to Cable Select and is connected to the black connector on the end of the UDMA cable, it is recognized as Set as Master for that PATA controller.
If the hard disk drive jumper is set to Cable Select and is connected to the grey connector on the middle of the UDMA cable, it is recognized as Set as Slave for that PATA controller.

Note: When using Cable Select, your system must meet the following conditions:
Your systems host controller must support Cable Select.
Your hard drives must support Cable Select.
Your cable must support Cable Select.

Set as Master:

Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable with a hard disk drive Set as Slave, jumper one hard disk drive to Set as Master, and the other to Set as Slave.
Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable and the Cable Select setting is not recognized.

Set as Slave:

Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable with a hard disk drive Set as Master, jumper one hard disk drive to Set as Master, and the other to Set as Slave.
Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable and the Cable Select setting is not recognized.

32 GB Clip Pin Setting:

Use this on computers manufactured before November 1998 when either you start up your computer and see the message, "Hard disk drive controller failure", or your system stops responding during the boot process after installing a new drive. This occurs when the hard disk drive is too large for the BIOS to support.

If after performing the troubleshooting procedure listed above, the full capacity of your hard disk drive is not recognized, click here for information about obtaining a system BIOS update. If you are unable to update your BIOS, another option would be to create a second partition with the remaining unallocated disk space.

Message "Enter password to unlock the system" appears Before I get into windows


There is either a BIOS password, or hard drive password set. The only way to get in is by either using the correct password, OR, you must rest the BIOS.

Here is how to reset the BIOS. Turn the computer off. Open the case. Look on the mother board for a jumper marked JP1 on the board. It will have a black jumper that is either, on one of 2 pins, or on 2 of 3 pins. In any case, one pin will not be in the jumper.

If you have 2 pins, and the jumper is only on one of them, Put the jumper on both of a second, then put it back the way it was.

If you have 3 pins, and the jumper is on 2 of them. The 3 pins are in line. So take the jumper off and put it is on the pin that was not in the jumper, and the center pin for a second, then back the way it was.

The reset can also be a small dip switch which will also be marked JP1. If it is a dip switch, just switch it one way, then back the way it was.

This will reset the bios. **IMPORTANT** When you do this, it basically shorts the battery out causing the BIOS to loose its memory. That is how it resets. You must return it to the way it was before turning the computer back on or it will not boot.

Good luck.

Jumper off will set the drive to slave. If you can connect both drives to the same ribbon cable with the master on the end & the slave to the second connector. Look at your bios as win is booting up to see if shows the drive as slave, you will not be able to copy windows as a operating system off of the drive, but should be able to copy files.

Good luck on your endevors.

DIP Switches don't seem to matter


You need to completely power off (wall switch or breaker) when changing the dip switches. Not just power off from remote because it will keep previous setting. I learned it the hard way....

No dip switch in Hunter 27157 remote control.


Those aren't transistors in the transmitter they are jumpers. Match the jumper settings with your dip switch settings in the receiver. You can move the jumpers in the transmitter using a small needle nose pliers. An open jumper in the transmitter equals an OFF setting on the dip switch in the receiver.

Good luck!

Maxoptix t5-2600 Will not eject MO Disk


As far as I know the green led means "write" & red led means "read". Don't increase time out on the SCSI card . If you press eject button wait 10 secs. If no response I think your MO drive having some problem . Or your jumper setting doesn't right.
I using t5-2600 on SunOS so I'm not exactly know what's problem on your drive. But Maxoptix MO drive very durable. I bought from ebay and manufacture date were 1999 . Oh my god . Just almost 10 years . And working good.

Maxtor Internal EIDE hard drive dip switch settings.


I assume you have two IDE controllers? IDE1 and IDE2, I'll try to help, the primary HD needs to have the pin set to primary and the secondary set to slave, if you're running both of these drives off of the same ribbon cable. You may have to go into your BIOS settings and check to make sure the Primary HD is the WD drive.
