How do you pin a maxtor 40 gig hard drive? I want toi jumper it so it runs continuus withe the 40 gig hard drive I have with a operating system or how do I have two operating systems in the same computer I...


If you are using the older style hard drive, the main drive will be the master and the other the slave. The master has the pin up and down in the middle position and the slave should be the second to the last on the right when looking at it from the back. There should also be a diagram on the top of it. Double check me though, just going by memory. I know you are aware but.....make sure the computer is off and don't forget to plug in the power plug. The computer should "find" it on boot up and give it a name, probably D or E.

PC will not see Maxtor 80GB DiamondMax Plus 9 as seconary slave.


Hi,

Two thing,

First, never use a Maxtor HDD as a slave to a CDROM/DVD, doesn't work and tends to cause stability issues. So try swapping the jumper on the CD/DVD to slave and setting the Maxtor to Master, this should get it working.

Second, if it is showing up as 33GB, you have the Jumpers set to limit capacity(designed to avoid troubles on older systems. If this is the case, you likely have a single jumper in the center row of pins between the power and data cables. If it only works as master at the moment, then you likely have the neter row(limit size pins) and the one closest to the data cable(Master Pin) both plugged in.

Change your DVD/CD to slave, remove the limiting jumper and ensure the Master jumper is installed on the Maxtor, then be sure the end connector on the ATA(likely marked master) is plugged into the Maxtor and the middle connector(Slave) is plugged into the DVD/CD, this should have you all fixed up.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

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.

How to detect the hardrive?


Hi,

setup the first drive as slave ( sometimes No Jumper ) then the furthest away drive as Master.
If this fails, and you have 2 IDE Slots on the motherboard. ( Primary/Secondary ) Put 1 drive on primary as Slave. And DVD Rom As Master ( same Cable ) Then put second drive On Secondary IDE Slot. ( Set As Master Or Slave )
If none of these solutions Work For you, check to see if Both Channels are activated in the Bios.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.
