Paramet cyl = ? head=? sect = ? of QML30000LD-A

Written on the FireballPlus AS label it says
C/H/S: 16383/16/63 = 16514064
( averages out to 1817 bytes/sector )
LBA's: 58633344

I need to replace the hard drive in my Toshiba

The ATA-5 Specification barrier According to the ATA specification, any drive over 7.88GB (8.46 billion Bytes) is supposed to report its "geometry" as 16383/16/63 (C/H/S). Which enables old software to access the first 7.84 to 7.88GB of such a drive, using CHS addressing and the BIOS Int 13h system call. And while a P-CHS over 16383/16/63 can be used to access all the drive capacity-- up to the ATA-5 128GB limit-- that is not the recommended way to do so. Rather, LBA addressing should be used to access those larger capacity drives. (Or at least any partition that goes over the 7.88GB BIOS Int 13h CHS barrier.)
So, LBA uses a 28 bit binary number to specify the sector number on a drive. Thus:

228 = 268435455 Sectors

268435455 Sectors x 512 Bytes/Sector = 137438952960 Bytes

Resulting in the 128GB (137.4 billion Bytes) ATA-5 size limit.

Hi i have a 10.1gb Maxtor model 31024H1 IDE hard drive and i need the jumper setting for slave

slave is NO jumpers at all

(Master) - The vertical jumper over the J50 pins is configuring the drive as a Master. The horizontal jumper over the J48 and J46 pins is in the Storage position.
(Master with CLJ) - The vertical jumper over the J50 pins is configuring the drive as a Master. The vertical jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
(Slave) - No jumper is required to configure the drive as a Slave. The jumpers over the J48, J46, J44 and J42 positions are both in the storage position.
(Slave with CLJ) - The jumper over the J44 and J42 positions is in the storage position. The jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
(Cable Select) - The jumper over the J48 position is configuring the drive for Cable Select. The jumper over the J44 and J42 pins is in the storage position.
(Cable Select with CLJ) - The jumper over the J48 position is configuring the drive for Cable Select. The jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).

How do I change jumper settings on Maxtor hard drive, model: 51024h2, hda: 02a, pcba: 61a?


Here's the manual for your drive.

I think the section you need is 2-5. You will need to disconnect the drive from power and the ribbon cable. Use gentle pressure to remove the cables.

If you aren't able to remove the jumpers by hand, I would suggest using tweezers or something similar.

Quantium 10.2 gb fireball CX10A011 specs. ie sectors, mode, etc.

The specifications to enter the information manually, are on top of the harddrive. Kind of hard to discern, huh? That's because harddrive sizes from 6.4GB through 20.4GB are listed on top.
C/H/S = Cylinders/Heads/Sectors
The Quantum Fireball CX10A011 hardrive is a 10.2GB harddrive.
You will see -> C/H/S....10.2 - 16383/16/63 on top.

That is ,
16,383 Cylinders
16 Heads
63 Sectors

As for the 40GB model, it should be similar. If not, come back and post.
