If you only have a single hard drive (or multiple hard drives for that matter), you should leave the jumper setting as "Cable Select" or CS.

See if this PDF matches your hard drive:

What settings in the bios with maxtor as slve and quantom fireball as master


There are no settings in the BIOS for setting up master ans slave drives.
The hard drives have jumpers for configuring master and Slave drives.
If your hard drives are IDE/PATA hard drives and you intend to install these drives on the same IDE cable then you can set the jumper on Quantum drive as Master and the Maxtor on Slave.
I suggest that you install the Quantum as master on the 1st IDE cable and the Maxtor as Master on the 2nd IDE cable for maximum data transfer rate between the two hard drived.
Any other devices that are connected to these IDE cables will need to be jumpered as Slave devices.

1 Solution for ''I have a Compaq Presario 7000 replacing the C harddrive the BIOS set up does not find harddrive''


possible causes:
1. jumper set incorrectly on hard drive itsself.
2. data or power cable not connected properly to hard drive
3. data cable backwards in hard drive or motherboard. (should always have the red stripe on the data cable towards the power connector on the hard drive and on pin number one of the motherboards' primary IDE connector)
check all off these...IF you are installing a SATA hard drive then you may need to install sata drivers on your computer.. Please post again if i misunderstood your question..

Have maxtor 40gb hd want to add 2nd WD hd in DEll dim8200


(if both drives on the same cable):
Your boot drive goes at the end of the primary data cable.
Your second drive goes on the middle connection of the same cable.
The red stripe on the data cable needs to be closest to the power connection (red stripe to pin 1).
The jumper on the boot drive set to master.
The jumper on the second drive set to slave.
Look in the BIOS to make sure it sees both harddrives.
Boot the system.. it will need to be partitioned and formatted if not already..
Regards..

Cant get the maxtor 80g hard drive to connect with my pc


TAKE IT OUT AND RE-INSTALL IT.CHECK THE JUMPERS AND MAKE SHURE THEY ARE SET TO MASTER OR FACTORY SETTINGS.LOOK AT THE JUMPERS ON THE OLD HARD DRIVE THAT YOU ARE REPLACING AND SET THEM EXACTLY AS THAT DRIVE.CHECK ALL CONNECTORS AND RIBBONS FOR SOLID CONNECTIONS.SOMETIMES,THE PINS INSIDE THE HARDDRIVE CONNECTOR BEND SLIGHTLY.IT IS REALLY HARD TO TELL UNLESS YOU REALLY LOOK AT THEM CAREFULLY.
