Jumper settings for a Maxtor hard drive, Model 87000D8
I have data on a Maxtor hard drive, Model 87000D8 that I need to retrieve, I want to slave it in and then I can recover the data.
I need to know the jumper settings for this hard drive.
I have the same situation as described by Pld8457. The Maxtor drive is Model 90845D4. Manufacturing P/N D8197-60101, Replacement: D8197-63001 and Exchange D8197-69001. (this is from the hard drive label)
Jumper J48 and "cable select" on.

I'd need a better model number, however the general jumper for most maxtor drives is J50 on = master, off = slave or cable select. /j50 is usually closest to the data cable and the jumper goes on vertically.
If this is an IDE/PATA hard drive then the jumper settings are marked on the circuit board. MA = master SL = slave CS = cable select If this hard drive is the one installed on the Primary IDE controller the the jumper has to be set to Master. If it won't boot up then the jumper needs to be set to Cable select.
If this hard drive is a second hard drive and is connected to the 2nd connector on the IDE data cable that is connected to the primary IDE controller then the jumper must be set to Slave.
If this hard drive is a second hard drive and is connected to the secondary IDE controller and there is no other drive on the IDE data cable other than this hard disk the the jumper can be set to either Master or Slave. If there is a CD drive on this cable too then the drives on this data cable then the jumpers on each drive must be set differently, they cannot be set the same jumper setting.
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.
