Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
Hard drives have three jumper settings on them.
3 CABLE SELECT----CS
If you have a hard drive on the end (last) on the ribbon cable connectors, then it is the master drive, and should be jumpered as such-- the jumper should be on the MA pins, any drive in the middle of the cable is jumpered as slave and should be on the SL pins.
CS usually causes problems, and I do not use it.
There are no jumpers on the motherboard that need to be changed for the hard drive. The only other settings for the hard drive are in the BIOS.
Please vote 4 thumbs up!!,

There should be a diagram showing how you should set the jumper. Set it according to what you want it to be and it should begin to should up. You can set it as Master, Slave, or Cable Select.

Serial ATA drives don't need master/slave jumpers. You can choose "computer select". In fact, you should be a ble to run an ATA drive with no jumper. When you enter set up, it should automatically be recognized with the right bios version.

I have never personally seen one but most drives are the same for the type of jumpers installed. See if this helps you:
