    Hi marcos hatfield, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? What do you mean by neutral position? Are you installing this as a primary or slave drive?

Jumper Settings: The Western Digital hard drive is factory set for single drive installation. Western Digital hard drives are shipped with a jumper in the neutral storage position (across pins 5 and 3) for future dual drive use. If you are installing the Western Digital hard drive as the only hard drive in your system, leave the jumper in the neutral storage position. Jumpers are not required for single hard drive installations.

Don't know make and model but try putting your key in the slot if you have a floor shifter and see if that releases it cable probably broke you will have to leave car in nutral and set parking brake or get a spare key to leave in the slot

Jumper settings fujitsu mhz2250 hdd


At the back edge of the hard drive next to the data and power connectors the is a jumper position for configuring the hard drive. Look at the circuit board and the jumper position will be marked as follows. SL = slave
CS - cable select, put the jumper into one of these position of your choice.

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.

Turn off power and reinstall the jumper in normal mode position


If I understand what you are asking: The computer starts up and you see the setup page. It then says that you are supposed to place the jumper in the normal position. It happens every time.

If this is correct, it is telling you that there is a jumper on the motherboard (probably labeled "clear CMOS) and it's set in the incorrect position. There will be three pins. The jumper is installed across two of them. Move the jumper (the little plastic thing) to the other setting: for example, if it's installed on pins 1 and 2, move it to 2 and 3. Give that a try. Will probably work for you.

Hi i have a 10.1gb Maxtor model 31024H1 IDE hard drive and i need the jumper setting for slave


slave is NO jumpers at all


(Master) - The vertical jumper over the J50 pins is configuring the drive as a Master. The horizontal jumper over the J48 and J46 pins is in the Storage position.
(Master with CLJ) - The vertical jumper over the J50 pins is configuring the drive as a Master. The vertical jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
(Slave) - No jumper is required to configure the drive as a Slave. The jumpers over the J48, J46, J44 and J42 positions are both in the storage position.
(Slave with CLJ) - The jumper over the J44 and J42 positions is in the storage position. The jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
(Cable Select) - The jumper over the J48 position is configuring the drive for Cable Select. The jumper over the J44 and J42 pins is in the storage position.
(Cable Select with CLJ) - The jumper over the J48 position is configuring the drive for Cable Select. The jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
