What does USB have to do with this drive? Is it external?

If not, did you set the Master/Slave jumper on the back correctly?

How to read old quantum 100MB HDD


Does you motherboard have the old PATA connectors (white 4 pin molex power and 40/80 pin flat & wide data cables?
Being that old you may have to get the little jumper pins at the back to be set in the correct layout (probably slave).
You can also get external PATA cases or docking stations and set it up that way.

What connections are required to set hard drive function (Master, Slave, etc) in this case for use on a USB extender


Doesn't matter where the pins are if the drive is being connected via usb because it will act as a internal drive. If anything, just set the jumper to Master.

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually ((red white green black)) make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts


or
PRODUCT NAME
FRONTX USB Type A Internal

PRODUCT CODE
CPX101-2

BAY USAGE
Half of large bay

CONNECTORS
USB type A female
1x5 header connector female

CABLE
USB cable (UL 2725)
Length - 2.5 feet (762 mm)


WIRE ASSIGNMENTS



Red: + 5V / Voltage + / VCC
White: D - / Data - / USB -
Green: D + / Data + / USB +
Black: GND / Voltage - / Ground
Black: S-GND / Over Current / Shielding

The S-GND wire is fatter and can be easily recognized. The connection of S-GND wire to the header pin is optional.

HEADER CONNECTION GUIDES


Diagram 1: On most motherboards, the USB header/pin-out consists of 9 pins arranged in 2 rows, which allows for 2 USB connections (i.e. USB1 and USB2). Normally, the pins for USB1 and USB2 are in seperate rows.
Diagram 2: Simply plug the connector onto the 5-pins row, and make sure that the pin assignments and wire assignments are matched correctly.
Diagram 3: Alternatively, you can plug the connector onto the 4-pins row, and leave the S-GND wire unconnected.
You might have to rearrange the wires to match with the pin assignments, or change the header connector if necessary, depending on the layout of the USB header.
On some motherboards, there is a NC pin in the USB header. You can connect the S-GND wire onto this pin. NC simply means "no connection" and NC pin is an "empty" pin.
2X5 PINS HEADER
Refer to the diagram below, for 2x5 pins header, simply plug the connector onto one row of the pins, and always make sure that pin assignments and wire assignments are matched correctly. You might have to rearrange the wires if necessary.


2X4 PINS HEADER
Refer to the diagram below, for 2x4 pins header, simply plug the connector onto one row of the pins. Please note that there is no S-GND pin in this header. You can leave the S-GND wire unconnected. You might have to rearrange the wires if necessary, in such that the wire assignments and pins assignments are matched correctly.



ACTIVE PINS NOT IN THE SAME ROW

On some motherboards, the 4 active pins are not located in the same row, as shown in the example below:

To connect to this type of USB header, you need to change the header connector to 2x5. Simply rearrange the wires within the 2x5 connector to match with the pin assignments. If the green wire is connected to the USB2+ pin, the white wire must be connected to the USB2- pin. The red wire can be connected to any +5V pin, and the black (GND) wire to any GND pin. If there is no S-GND pin provided, you can leave the S-GND wire unconnected.




hope it helps

Hi, every time i connect this to my home computer it turns it off! if i turn the computer on with it already connected it turns it off, have done initial set up on work computer and can access ok from...


sounds like your pc's usb socket has a problem, try the following...
1. Try a different usb port,
2. Using a small light (and possibly a magnifying glass) look inside the usb port on the pc for bent pins or distortion within the socket causing the pins to touch something they shouldn't.
3. check the usb cable for minor damage, try a different cable if you can, different machines use different ways of manufacturing sockets making some more sensitive to a damaged plug than others.
The pc turning off is a safety system which prevents power being sent through data ports. If the pc turns off immediately after inserting the usb cable then that's a sure sign that there is a bad connection/short somewhere between the socket and the cable.
Hope this helps.

Maxtor HD has 8 pins with shunt on 5 & 6 and the new HD I bought which is compatible just larger has 10 pins. Do I set the shunts on 5 & 6 for the newer HD?


there should be a sticker on one side of the drive that tells you which pins to put the jumper on, so use the master setting if its the only hard drive your using. if its not, use the slave setting

Posted by Decoder1 on Feb 25, 2009 I also had a problem with XP not recognizing the hard drive. The USB Mass Storage Device was reporting a Code 10 (Device cannot start). Ryockey provided the solution in that the drive pins can be offset by one set when connected to the interface. Be careful to get the pins aligned correctly, it worked for me. I also have my drive jumper set for Master. Thanks Robert!

HARD DRIVE ENCLOSURE RECOGNITION BY MY PC PROBLEM


Had the same problem today. I finally noticed that the pin bay on the enclosure was large enough to allow the pins to be offset by one pin set. The open pins were hidden by wires. Once I carefully aligned the pins, everything worked fine.

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).
