usually when you update or re-flash the dvd rom.
it will state :- ensure that the drive to be flashed should be jumper set as master. if there were other drives connected to the same ide channel. this could have caused damage to the other drives connected. Or the IDE Channels themselves.
The only suggestion I have for you. is to remove all the drives. disconnect the power from the computer. and remove the cmos battery, for 10-15 seconds. resetting the computers bios back to defaults. then re-settup the drives ensuring that the jumpers are correct for each drive. i.e 1 slave and 1 master on each ide cable.

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,

SOURCE: I have a Steamist SM-8
1) Steamist SM-8 is a Steambath steam generator with 5 year parts warranty and 2 years labor
2) Steamist website does not have manuals that we can immediately download and look at error codes alongside you.
3) However your manual has that information, and you can add a comment and say what the manual suggests as troubleshooting, so we can offer some level of do-it-yourself help.
4) Perhaps you could scan your manual into pdf format and post your manual on your website.
And then add a comment with web location of manual so we can download and read your manual, alongside you, and perhaps offer additional do-it-yourself solution for you.
For example check that circuit breaker is delivering 240V to product, and element is not burned out, and there are no loose wires, and condensing reservoir is not clogged with sediments that can be cleaned with CLR.
5) The manual is key: I'm sure the manual also shows regular maintenance needed to ensure long life of product. For example avoid exposure to hard water, use water filter, clean reservoir and lines regularly. Avoid freezing.
I always tell people to save product manual like gold and read it cover to cover because it will save money and trouble long-run.
6) Steamist website has contact us link: With direct e-mail to 'troubleshoot' and 'literature'
I suggest next step should be contact manufacturer and request each of the following: a) a manual b) do-it-yourself assistance c) warranty information d) name of authorized technician to make repairs.
Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on steamer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

SOURCE: primary slave drive fails
Go into the BIOS and make sure you are trying to boot from the Primary Master Drive first. If not, move the Master Drive to the 1st boot position.
If the above fails, you could just remove the power cord, remove the case and notice how the two drives are connected and remember it. There will be one cable that provides power to the drive from the power supply on each drive. Also, there might be one cable that connects both drive, or there might be one in each drive, etc. I would disconnect the power and cable on one of the drives and try rebooting. If it fails and you have one cable that connects both drives, try the other cable connection and reboot. If it still fails, then I would try doing the same thing with the other drive.
If all the above fails and your system has the IDE (whereas the cable has about a 2 inch end with about 20 holes that plug into the 20 pins on the hard drive) interface, remove the drive to check and see if the little pin on there along is set to Primary, Master or Cable Select. Normally on a two drive system they will be set to CS for Cable Select and the IDE Cable based on how it is plugged into the drives determines which is Master and Slave, but older systems might have the Master and Slave setup.
