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.

Master slave jumper settings on 250gb Maxline Plus II SATA


There are no master/slave settings on SATA drives because each drive has its own cable. The drive order is determined by what SATA port they are plugged into, or by the BIOS configuration.

Most Maxtor Drives have jumper setting so that if "Jumper 50" is set; the two pins farthest from the power jack, is Master Drive. No pin jumper set, Slave or Cable Select. I hope this helps.

If one of the jumpers shorts two pins and the other jumper is a single pin short, remove the two pin jumper. The single pin jumper should be located on the pin at the far upper right corner. should be set as a slave at that point.

Maxtor 500 gig internal diamondmax 21


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).

The second pair joined (jumper) I suspect it is configured as cable select.
J50 is the left-most pair, and joining them sets the drive as master.
