Note: when the jumpers on this link are -(horizontal) they are stowed in a storage position, when they are l (vertical)they are in place. Most often hard drives are put in cable select allowing their placement on the ribbon cable to determine which is master and which is slave.

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.

Hi i have a 10.1gb Maxtor model 31024H1 IDE hard drive and i need the jumper setting for slave


slave is NO jumpers at all


(Master) - The vertical jumper over the J50 pins is configuring the drive as a Master. The horizontal jumper over the J48 and J46 pins is in the Storage position.
(Master with CLJ) - The vertical jumper over the J50 pins is configuring the drive as a Master. The vertical jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
(Slave) - No jumper is required to configure the drive as a Slave. The jumpers over the J48, J46, J44 and J42 positions are both in the storage position.
(Slave with CLJ) - The jumper over the J44 and J42 positions is in the storage position. The jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
(Cable Select) - The jumper over the J48 position is configuring the drive for Cable Select. The jumper over the J44 and J42 pins is in the storage position.
(Cable Select with CLJ) - The jumper over the J48 position is configuring the drive for Cable Select. The jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).

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.

Maxtor harddrive jumper setting


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:

Maxtor HD


The second pair joined (jumper) I suspect it is configured as cable select.
J50 is the left-most pair, and joining them sets the drive as master.
