    you can install it as a "slave" harddrive by connecting it on the second spot on the IDE ribon (grey looking connection , connecting to first harddrive). but before you do that, you have to change to "jumper" to match the "slave" on the back of the second hard drive. then connecting it. so where you turn the computer on, the system wil see it as a second hard drive and u can see what is in it. and use it as a storage if need to be,

    you can try to install it as you primary, without changing any jumpers, (since your friend mostlikely had it as his master), but the only thing is you drivers has to be changed to match. since if you put the harddrive as primary, you most likely are going to be able to boot from it, but it going to tell you or give you few errors (especially in device manager -if you right click on "my computer" click properties, then click hardware, then device manager- ), so it is not a smoot road. but it is worth a shot if you are willing to go that route. just remember to take your HDD off OR put is as a slave (so you can retrieve your documents from it.
    good luck.

Can not find Jumper diagram on N256 Maxtor model 33073H3


Hello there soggytundra, here's your GEEK-steer ...

Despite your question being posted here 5 days ago, I'll presume you still (and if not, then someone else will) need the answer ...

Virtually all Maxtor drives adhere to the following general rules concerning jumper settings (at least up until now):

= MASTER (M): Insert jumper over the FIRST COMPLETE pair of VERTICAL pins.

Examples:
Xoo o oXooo Xooo
Xoooo Xooo Xooo

= CABE SELECT (CS): Insert jumper over the SECOND COMPLETE pair of VERTICAL pins.

Examples:
oXo o oXooo oXoo
oXooo Xooo oXoo

= SLAVE (S): Do NOT insert ANY jumpers (or at least NONE VERTICALLY, but you may HORIZONTALLY across the TOP row as simply a means of storing the jumper).

Examples:
ooo o ooooo oooo oooXX oooXX ooXX
ooooo oooo oooo ooooo oooo oooo

TIP: As a general rule, if you KNOW the role of the jumper capable device you're installing, it is better to NOT use Cable Select (CS). In this case you do, therefore it would be best to specifically designate the (33073H3) drive as (secondary) Slave [and your other (primary) drive as Master].

Good luck and GOD-speed. Please post back if you have any further questions, and/or just to let me (and others in similar need) know how well this steers to solution.

There should be a diagram showing how you should set the jumper. Set it according to what you want it to be and it should begin to should up. You can set it as Master, Slave, or Cable Select.
