If its an IDE internal drive:

it may be that you have not set the drive up via the jumpers on the rear of the drive,

if it is your second drive and you have it on the same data ribbon as the other hard drive ,set the new one to slave drive,

if it is on a separate ribbon going into the IDE2 socket on the motherboard set it as a master,

good luck & let me know how you go with that.

Want put additional hard drive in presario s6020wm is this possiable, also do the rpm speeds have to be the same I have a maxtor diamondmax plus 9 80g that spins at 7200, the one in the computer spins at...


It’s very possible to do and no it doesn't matter that each drive runs at different Rpm speeds.
The difference between a hard disk drive that runs at 5400Rpm and a 7200 Rpm is data transfer speed. The 7200 drive will run faster but the drives cache also plays a big part when transferring data. A drive that runs at 7200Rpm with a 16MB cache will run faster than a drive with 8MB cache. The 7200Rpm drive will run a little hotter than a 5400Rpm drive and use a little less power. Typically you’d want to use the 7200Rpm drive as the primary drive. (With windows installed on it).
The 5400Rpm drive should be used as a storage drive and be connected on the same data cable as a slave drive. How to safely remove data from the 5400 drive. Before you shut down the system, open windows explorer. Click on the C:\ than delete the Boot.ini, AUTOEXEC.BAT, and IO.SYS files. (By doing this the drive will no longer be bootable but all the data will stay intact). Shut down the system. Remove the 5400Rpm drive from the system. Install the 7200Rpm drive. (The new drive is an IDE drive. Set its jumper so it is a Master.) Guide to setting-up an IDE drive; http://freepctech.com/pc/001/installing_ide_devices.shtml
Set the jumper for the 7200 drive as a Master with a slave. (The 5400 drive will be added later).
Once the drive is configured and installed boot the system and enter the bios/CMOS menu. Press the delete key to enter the bios or watch you're screen you may need to press the F1, F2 key or F10 key to enter the bios menu. Instruction on how to move about while in the bios is shown at the bottom of the bios screen. You should see the model numbers of you’re 7200 DiamondMax drive within the main bios menu.
You will also need to set the boot menu / boot order.
Open the Boot menu. A typical boot menu would list as follows:
1st Boot device, Floppy disk drive
2nd Boot device, CD-ROM drive
3rd Boot device, Primary hard disk drive.
4th Boot device, not needed
Compaq does not provide bios settings within their user guide. Before you save and exit the bios, open the CD-ROM drive and load you're windows CD or the restore CD from Compaq. Save and exit the bios. When the system reboots it should start up the windows CD or the restore CD. Follow the on-screen instructions from the restore CD. Once windows is installed update windows. When finished it is now time to add the old 5400Rpm drive. Shut down the system. You will need to change the jumper on the on the 5400Rpm drive. Set the jumper to Slave and insert it into an open bay. Connect the data cable and power cable. Check that all cables are fully connected. Boot you're system. Windows should load. You're 5400Rpm drive will most likely be labeled as letter E. You can change the drive letter order by opening the run window. Click Start and in the run window type in: diskmgmt.msc than click ok. Open Help. Click, help topics. Click on disk management.

My hard drive stopped reading out of nowhere,as it tries to boot up it makes a clicking noise about every 10 to 15 seconds,it is a maxtor,I recently updated drivers for what i belive was my video card and...


It is enough info:
It is possible that the hard drive is bad (clicking noise - not good); however, try this:

1. Turn ON computer and get into the BIOS (probably by pressing the "del"ete key).
2. Go to the "Boot sequence" menu and make your Maxtor the FIRST boot device. (If CDROM is first, that's ok, too as long as the Maxtor is the SECOND boot device then).
3. Save changes (F10?) and start Windows (hopefully).
4. If it still doesn't work, go back to the BIOS settings and select "Use default settings". This will reset all BIOS settings to the factory settings. & try to boot Windows again.
5. If it still doesn't work, maybe you disturbed the hard drive (Maxtor) cables if you made any physical changes to the computer.
6. If so, or for the heck of it, open the computer and re-seat the cables on the Maxtor drive and motherboard.
7. Try again ...... or *sigh* replace hard drive.

Hope this helps!

Vista is not picking up my maxtor harddriver but wheni had xp was .


Check the disk management MMC - it's likely that you have another drive letter that is conflicting with the Maxtor.
1. Right Click on the Computer Icon (or in the menu),
2. click on Managment,
3. look for Disk Management(on the left side) and click on that.
4. This will show you all the installed HD's that you have.

Your main HD is probably called Disk 0. IF there are any other HD's listed they will probably be labled "removeable", if it doesn't have a drive letter assigned to it do the following:

1. Right click on the Disk (X) that does not have a drive letter. (it should be a "Removable Drive")
2. Select Change drive letter and Paths.
3. Choose a drive letter from the list that is not used, I suggest W or Z just to be sure.
4. After you do that it should come up in My Computer as an available drive.

IF the External Drive is not listed then you need to change the USB port or try it on another PC to see if it works there.

Maxtor 500 gig internal diamondmax 21


external USB hard drives do not need to be jumpered, if your computer does not recognize the ext. drive probably it is because the enclosure is defective, when you connect the USB cable you should get the "ding-dong" connection sound.

If you think that your computer recognizes the hard drive then jumper it as "secondary" or "cable select" and install it INTERNALLY, then transfer your data, that will prove that there's a problem with the ext. enclosure.

One more thing, maybe the USB port you use is malfunctioning, try one that you know that works (assuming that you have other USB devices that work).

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.
