Well, I am guessing that you are adding an HDD? Anyway, I would try it on 3gb/s operation, and if you computer starts crashing, then put in on 1.5.

1. Decide which hard drive will be the startup (master) drive. If this drive was the startup drive previously, or if it's a new hard drive, then the master drive designation will already be set.
2. To change the designation of a new drive to be a slave drive, skip to step 4.
3. To change the designation of an existing drive to be a slave drive: Turn off the computer, unplug the power cord, remove the drive from its drive bay, and disconnect the drive from its power cord and ribbon cable.
4. Check the hard drive documentation or the label on the drive itself for master/slave jumper settings.
5. Find the jumpers on the circuit board of the drive. Jumpers are plastic plugs with metal sleeves that form a circuit between a pair of pins. Jumper locations are labeled on the board with a J followed by a number (such as J20).
6. Use tweezers or very small pliers to remove or reposition the jumpers to the configuration shown in the documentation or on the disk label.

There should be jumpers on the back of both hard drives. You need to set the primary hard drive jumper to MASTER and the secondary hard drive jumper to SLAVE. Here is a picture of the jumper settings.

I have connected my 300 gb sata hdd to my pc which already has a 160gb sata hdd set to master when i start up my pc they r both set to master but i am told sata hdds dont have master / slave settings


They don't have master/slave settings as only one SATA drive can connect to a controller, however some BIOS have a setting designed to facilitate older OS's like XP that don't always have drivers available for the newer SATA RAID controllers built into most mid to high end PC's. If this setting is enabled on your PC then they would look to windows like a pair of master IDE drives on a Primary and Secondary IDE Channel even though each has it's own dedicated controller.

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.

Jumper settings for a maxtor N256 master with slave


Select the maxtor HDD as master by setting the Jumper to the extreme left of the hdd; i.e. next to the data cable.
Remove all jumpers from the other HDD which you want to put as slave.

Jumper Settings


If you leave it at cable select the cable will set the drive to either master or slave depending on where it is on the cable, the first or second connector. Just make sure any other drive hooked up is set to cable select.

Your best option is to actually set each drive to master and slave. Each drive should show you where to put the jumper. Make sure you only have one master and slave though.

Which jumper to use? The one thats already on the HD...?
:D
