I have a maxtor quantum fireball plus as 20.5 hard drive. i want to set it to slave. how do i set the jumpers?


on maxtor drives, you will find the jumper within a cluster of 9 pins. if you look on the bottom of the drive, on the circuit board, the pins should be labeled "ms" "cs" and such. the "ms" and "cs" stand for "master" and "cable select". you rarely use the true "slave" setting anymore, more often than not' "slave" drives are set to "cable select" and are attached to the middle, slave position on the ide cable. in "cable select" mode, the cable decides what device is master and what is slave, depending upon the devices' position on the ide cable.

to set the drive to "slave", set the jumper so that it only has 1 pin under it, and doesnt actually jump any pins, or just take the jumper out. only use the "slave" setting if the "master" device on the same ide cable is actually set to "master".

if the master device is actually set to "cable select" then you will have to set the slave device also to "cable select" and the middle position on the ide cable will set it automatically to be a slave. , instead of using the jumper to make it the "slave".

to set the drive as "cable select", which is what i would recommend, use the jumper to connect the 2 pins which are labeled "cs", the 2nd position from the bottom position on most older maxtor drives, and attach this hard drive to the middle connector of the ide cable.

PC will not see Maxtor 80GB DiamondMax Plus 9 as seconary slave.


Hi,

Two thing,

First, never use a Maxtor HDD as a slave to a CDROM/DVD, doesn't work and tends to cause stability issues. So try swapping the jumper on the CD/DVD to slave and setting the Maxtor to Master, this should get it working.

Second, if it is showing up as 33GB, you have the Jumpers set to limit capacity(designed to avoid troubles on older systems. If this is the case, you likely have a single jumper in the center row of pins between the power and data cables. If it only works as master at the moment, then you likely have the neter row(limit size pins) and the one closest to the data cable(Master Pin) both plugged in.

Change your DVD/CD to slave, remove the limiting jumper and ensure the Master jumper is installed on the Maxtor, then be sure the end connector on the ATA(likely marked master) is plugged into the Maxtor and the middle connector(Slave) is plugged into the DVD/CD, this should have you all fixed up.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Master slave jumper settings on 250gb Maxline Plus II SATA


There are no master/slave settings on SATA drives because each drive has its own cable. The drive order is determined by what SATA port they are plugged into, or by the BIOS configuration.

Installation of one touch mini 4


hello, if you are adding an extra hard drive for space make sure to change the teeny jumper to the proper pins next to the connection slots on the hard drive. the jumper makes your hard drive work as a slave (extra drive) or a master (main drive). if you have a main drive allready on your comp and you dont switch the jumper the slave position the computer will not recognize it becuase of the new hard drives jumper being in the master position or pin connector.
if your installing it as a 2nd master drive you need to use your extra hard drive slot on the mother board for this to work as a secound master then you need the jumper in the master pin slot. there is a small diagram on to the hard drive info label it looks like pins and it shows you where to locate or place the jumper for either master or slave.
for a slave drive once you have placed the jumper properly then you can instal it on the same cable with the main. look at the cable it will have a main and a slave small label printon the connector or if you prefer you can use the 2nd hard drive cable on the secound slot on the mother board turn on your comp if you are going for a extra hard drive the comp should recognize it if the jumper is properly placed. when your comp is running you can check by going into (computer) and it should be there as a new drive letter

after this you may need to format the drive for use. you right click on the hard drive letter and choose format drive

hope this helps good luck with your upgrade.
