Question about Maxtor DiamondMax 60 (33073U4) 30.7 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Setting Maxtor HD as Slave.

I have a Maxtor HD, Model (33073U4), that I like to setup as a slave. I am looking at the label on the HD and it does not give jumper combo to set it up as a slave. All it showes is that Jumper: J50, Master/Single: on, Slave: off.

The jumpers are there, I just don't know how to make it the Slave HD.

Howdy,

First "easy" one I've had in hours....

Just pull the J50 pin out of the jumper block and PRESTO it'll be a slave the OFF position literally reffers to having the J50 pin off of the hard drive. Just a note though, I highly recommend using a peice of scotch tape to affix the pin to a nearby surface cause there a real pain to find if and when you need em again.

I have a maxtor 250 gb from a old hp computer model 6L250S0 do I need to setup as a slave hd


you only need to do this if you have only one IDE cable. If your are using SATA cables there is no need. IDE is the big wide ribbon cable SATA is the little blue connector.

I have an extra hard drive that I would like to add as a slave HD to my computer the one I want to be a slave is a MAXTOR model 32049H2. how do I set up the jumper?


moz-screenshot.pngI would guess that it is a diamond max driver, and therefore the jumper setting for slave should be no jumper at all. But in case I am mistaken, here are all the jumper setups for Maxtor drives, choose the one that looks like your setup and then choose the correct Slave setting:oss279.jpg

I have a maxtor quantum fireball plus as 20.5 hard drive. i want to set it to slave. how do i set the jumpers?


on maxtor drives, you will find the jumper within a cluster of 9 pins. if you look on the bottom of the drive, on the circuit board, the pins should be labeled "ms" "cs" and such. the "ms" and "cs" stand for "master" and "cable select". you rarely use the true "slave" setting anymore, more often than not' "slave" drives are set to "cable select" and are attached to the middle, slave position on the ide cable. in "cable select" mode, the cable decides what device is master and what is slave, depending upon the devices' position on the ide cable.

to set the drive to "slave", set the jumper so that it only has 1 pin under it, and doesnt actually jump any pins, or just take the jumper out. only use the "slave" setting if the "master" device on the same ide cable is actually set to "master".

if the master device is actually set to "cable select" then you will have to set the slave device also to "cable select" and the middle position on the ide cable will set it automatically to be a slave. , instead of using the jumper to make it the "slave".

to set the drive as "cable select", which is what i would recommend, use the jumper to connect the 2 pins which are labeled "cs", the 2nd position from the bottom position on most older maxtor drives, and attach this hard drive to the middle connector of the ide cable.

Hard drive was freezing up .i have already replaced and reloaded


On the back of the hdd you will see a row of little pins in groups of 2 vertically. It will be marked either right above the pins or on the top of the hdd above the pins, ma, sl, cs. The setting for slave is sl. Put the plastic jumper cap on those 2 pins & it is set for slave. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
