It's not clear the model you are asking for, so I have to give you the total WD jumper settings and choose the case that you want.

To raid, or not to raid,? that is the question............


Hi,

Always a good question,

For #1

Always a good idea to mirror your OS drive for quick recovery. So yes I would use 40GB of the velociraptor for a mirror. However if your board supports it I would actually suggest you would be better served for your dollar to buy some 500GB+ WD greens or seagate 7200.12's(do NOT buy 7200.11) then set them up as raid5, frankly you'll get redundancy and speed, with more space. 4 Greens will perform as well as three VRs and cost less.

I currently run two Greens and 2 7200.12's on my home server and the 7 rating is 7.6 for my HDD and I've got 4.2TB of space for under $500.

I mentions some of the pro's and cons in detail on my blog last week Pro's and Cons.

Hope this helps,

Chris

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.

Vista OS computer does not see WD400 connected externally via USB to IDE cable.


Purchased a USB to IDE cable. Looked like it was communicating with the hard drive (WD400) my computer did not see the drive. (Vista OS).

Western Digital customer service recommended that I change the jumper pin to position #4 on the hard drive and install inside the computer as a an additional slave drive.

Worked perfectly.

How to set jumpers in an old quantum fireball Lct20 HD. The master mode needs to be "jumpered"


Please look on top of your HD and u will see a table that show u the HD jumper setting (Master, Slave or Cable Select).
Then look again the rear side of the HD and u will see some pin that locate beside the power input of the HD, that is the jumper pin.

Now set the jumper according to your requirement refer to the jumper setting table just now. To set it just unplug the jumper (look like a U shape contactor covered with plastic) and plug it back according to the requirement. Sometime u may lost the jumper contactor, nevermind just use what ever conductor cable to roll between the two pin and make sure the pin is connected that all.
