Where it states Dual Master is the setting for the Master harddrive. Where it states Dual Slave is the setting for the Slave harddrive.
Look at the label on your harddrive, and see if it shows the settings for Master. If not write down the Model Number, and search it online. OR, post the Model Number in a Comment, and I'll look it up for you.
It may be where there is NO jumper used on the Master harddrive.
Look up the information for the 2nd (Slave drive) harddrive, if it is not stated on the label.
You need to know where the jumper pin settings should be, when using two harddrives.
Past this point you need to look at the flat ribbon cable. There are IDE ribbon cables that have 40 wires, and 80 wires. Both styles have 40 contact pins. (39 actually. 1 is not used)
With the 40 wire IDE cable the Master harddrive is plugged into the MIDDLE connector, on the cable. The Slave drive is plugged into the END connector.
With the 80 wires IDE cable, it is reversed. Master harddrive goes to the END connector, Slave drive goes to the MIDDLE connector.
You can change the jumper settings near to the data cable port to change the master slave settings on most of the HDDs. Most probably you can see the labels near tot he jumpers itself to change the master slave settings. You can see the below picture for reference.. please set that according to the label near to the jumper pins..
Garmin Pin codes are accessed ( when forgotten) By taking it back to the coordinates that it was first set. You would know where you were when you set the pin code. So just mosey on back there and once in place access your unit and reset the code.
There is no master code, that process IS the master code access
In first HDD put the jumper in first vertical pair of pins from power socket side, it will become master and second HDD put jumper in second vertical pair of pins from power socket side it will become slave.
normaly the harddrive and the cd rom will be the primary master just make sure that the jumpers on the harddrive are set to match the cable ie master on the drive and master on the cable and same for the cd rom also rember this that the colored strip on the connector cable always goes to pin 1on the device ok? hope that this helps please dont forget to rate this solution for me it helps me also.
best regards mike
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.
If you can send it in to Garmin to have it unlocked, then there must be a "master" code. Since the USB port is dead until the unit is unlocked, Garmin must have to either enter in some special code or reset the unit in some special way.
