If it has the black and red wires, it connects into JP2.  The other wires, which are black and green connect directly to the power supply into connector CN4. Bob

At the back edge of the hard drive next to the data and power connectors the is a jumper position for configuring the hard drive. Look at the circuit board and the jumper position will be marked as follows. SL = slave
CS - cable select, put the jumper into one of these position of your choice.

About 2 months ago I bought a samsung s2 portable 1Tb. It has worked fine until yesterday. It slipped down from where it was laying (while plugged in and running) and was hanging the 20 cm usb-cabel. Now I...


Hanging by the 20cm USB cable?

The cable could be stretched, and wires broken inside.
The cable to small circuit board, inside the case, could have broken solder joints.
The circuit board inside the Samsung's case could be broken.

Inside that small outer case of the Samsung portable is a laptop size Harddrive.
The harddrive measures 2.5 inches across in width.

(6.4cm. In comparison a desktop size harddrive is 3.5 inches across in width, or 8.9cm)

The harddrive is a SATA unit also.

This is a general example of a 2.5 SATA harddrive,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148591


Inside the outer case (External Enclosure) is also a small circuit board (PCB)
The harddrive plugs into the small circuit board, and the circuit board has a USB cable attached to it.

(Or there is a small cable from circuit board to harddrive. Then a USB cable to the circuit board)


I would suggest removing the 2.5 SATA harddrive, and install it into an economical external enclosure.

Example of a 2.5 SATA External Enclosure,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3195233&CatId=2783

Basic guidance in removing the Harddrive from a Samsung S2 Portable,

1) It looks as though the outside front is a thick cover like a label. It may be that you peel back the corners, and there will be a screw in each corner.

(For example; Where it states Samsung. Go to the right corner. Does this cover-like material peel back? Is there a screw underneath? Remove it.
Go to the opposite corner. Now above to the left and right corners)

The unit looks to come apart in two halves.

Might just be held together by sticky tape.

Here are some videos performing opening the external enclosure, (Case) of other external portable harddrives,

1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMzRYCZXVEs&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PLC129A4F797CCC09E

2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2vUMO2mGLE&feature=related

There are other related videos. In general most are not very professional, but get the job done.

Hi,
Seems like your hard drive is malfunctioning, try another HD. That 80gb is already obsolete and the circuit board might have some defect.
If you could pull out the underside circuit and clean the gold contact points and try it again, if still not working...... buy a new one!
Check also the jumper and cable it must be in the "master" configuration.

Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for asking FixYa!

What are the correct jumper settings for my hard drive in an e-machine T-6520 with windows home ed. XP2005


cooperbill78 these are the jumper settings for a Seagate Barracuda ATA harddrive,

http://www.seagate.com/images/support/en/us/u5_family_1.gif

As you can see the jumper should be on Pins 7 and 8.

Make sure the harddrive is plugged into the END of the flat ribbon data cable.

Pin 1 goes toward the power connection.

Some flat ribbon data cable's connectors have a Locating Lug on one side. A square protrusion, or two ribs.
This lug lines up with a cutout in the circuit board on the back of the harddrive.

If no Locating Lug is present, and/or no Locating Notch in the harddrive, make sure Pin 1 is towards the power connection on the harddrive.

On one side of the flat ribbon data cable is a faint red stripe. (Sometimes hard to see)
This red stripe is on the same side as Pin 1.

When installing the flat ribbon data cable, ensure that the red stripe on the cable, faces the power connection on the harddrive.

For further questions please post in a Comment.

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.

How the jumper setting is done for maxtor n256j50


If this is an IDE/PATA hard drive then the jumper settings are marked on the circuit board.
MA = master
SL = slave
CS = cable select
If this hard drive is the one installed on the Primary IDE controller the the jumper has to be set to Master. If it won't boot up then the jumper needs to be set to Cable select.

If this hard drive is a second hard drive and is connected to the 2nd connector on the IDE data cable that is connected to the primary IDE controller then the jumper must be set to Slave.

If this hard drive is a second hard drive and is connected to the secondary IDE controller and there is no other drive on the IDE data cable other than this hard disk the the jumper can be set to either Master or Slave.
If there is a CD drive on this cable too then the drives on this data cable then the jumpers on each drive must be set differently, they cannot be set the same jumper setting.
