Easy! All you have to do is right click on the hard-drive in "My Computer" and click on properties. You should now be able to see details of the Hard-drive including the size.

Setting Maxtor HD as Slave.


Howdy,

First "easy" one I've had in hours....

Just pull the J50 pin out of the jumper block and PRESTO it'll be a slave the OFF position literally reffers to having the J50 pin off of the hard drive. Just a note though, I highly recommend using a peice of scotch tape to affix the pin to a nearby surface cause there a real pain to find if and when you need em again.

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.

Pin settings


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.
