There are four Jumper settings on a Maxtor:
(got it from http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/windows/t-32378-Windows-XP-Home--No-boot-device-help.html)
posted by by mr.smit:
"The 2nd row, is for DS(Master): only 1 drive in PC, or the drive that you want to boot up from.
The 3rd row, is CS Enabled: Cable select, the computer desides wich harddisk is master and wich one is slave
The 4th is cap limit: windows cannot run on harddisks that are to big, like 300gb, so putting jumper on cap limit (capacity limit) makes it smaller for windows to use it.
The 5th row has no use, or i don't know what it does, either of that 2."
I would like to add about the DS (Slave) setting. It is used if there is another drive present on the system which you want to boot from. It will become a spare Hard Disk.
Here is a picture of a maxtor drive indicating where to find model number and jumper settings.

external USB hard drives do not need to be jumpered, if your computer does not recognize the ext. drive probably it is because the enclosure is defective, when you connect the USB cable you should get the "ding-dong" connection sound.
If you think that your computer recognizes the hard drive then jumper it as "secondary" or "cable select" and install it INTERNALLY, then transfer your data, that will prove that there's a problem with the ext. enclosure.
One more thing, maybe the USB port you use is malfunctioning, try one that you know that works (assuming that you have other USB devices that work).

If this is a new drive, you will need to format it before it will show up in My Computer. To do so, start by right-clicking on My Computer, then choose Manage from the menu. Click on Disk Management, you should see a list of drives in your system. Your new drive will show up as unallocated space, right-click on that and choose New Partition, choose the size of the partition you want, and choose to format it. Once the partitioning and format process is complete, the drive should show up in My Computer under a new drive letter.
