Hello

At the back of the drive, you should be able to see the jumper setting. There must be a small jumper in as well. Have a look at the pic, and just set it to slave and you should be set.

I HAVE 2 MODEL 90645D3 , THAT I WANT TO RUN ON MY PC , WHERE DO I PUT THE JUMPER ????


Hello,

If one Jumper firt in master (M) and another will be slave(SL) or cable select(CS).
Many drives feature an option called Cable Select (CS). With the correct type of IDE ribbon cable, these drives can be auto configured as master or slave.And it is market on every hard disk.

Follow the bellow link.http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/images/support/en/us/mxo_ata_jumpers_rev.jpg

I want to add another hard drive and need to know how to set the jumpers on my maxtor 90645d3 please help.ty


if you want to boot from this drive, please set the jumper to the master position.

if this drive is for additional storage, please set the jumper to slave. and make sure 1st hard drive is set to master.

if this is the only drive in the system, please set the jumper to single or remove the jumper.

there will be a chart telling you which pins are for which setting in the jumper area, which is between the data plug and the power plug on the back of your HDD.

main thing that will cause drives to not work is 2 jumpers on the same cable and they both are set to the same thng.. i.e. master/master or slave/slave. also, if one is set to single drive it will likely bypass the slave drive.

Can I put stuff from a comp. w/ a virus onto a maxtor hard drive


Yes, naturally it depends on the virus, what kind it is and where it is stored. Most of the time you can safely transfer files to another hard drive worry free. I would not use a program such as "Ghost" that copies all your system's drivers over. Only save necessary files, format your old hard drive and re-load everything.

Hope this helps,

Thanks

Take Three: I have an older Maxtor Hard DriveTake Two: I have an older Maxtor Hard Drive (Model 90645D3). I need to transfer some files from it (Win98SE) to new hard drive (WinXP Pro). I asked earlier and...


Jumper off will set the drive to slave. If you can connect both drives to the same ribbon cable with the master on the end & the slave to the second connector. Look at your bios as win is booting up to see if shows the drive as slave, you will not be able to copy windows as a operating system off of the drive, but should be able to copy files.

Good luck on your endevors.

Hard drive was freezing up .i have already replaced and reloaded


On the back of the hdd you will see a row of little pins in groups of 2 vertically. It will be marked either right above the pins or on the top of the hdd above the pins, ma, sl, cs. The setting for slave is sl. Put the plastic jumper cap on those 2 pins & it is set for slave. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

On the back of the drive you should see 3 groups of 2 pins. One probably already has the plastic jumper on it. They should be marked: m s cs. The m mis the master setting. s is slave & cs is cable select. Place the jumper onto the group of pins marked m & your drive is now set to master. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
