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.

Maxtor hard drive settings for a 53073H4


Before doing anything, the user should completely shut down and unplug the computer to prevent electrocution or computer damage. Remove the computer's side panel so that the hard drive is displayed in order to find the jumpers on the IDE drive. Disconnect the power and IDE cables from the hard drive to access the drive better. The hard drive's jumpers are the small, black pegs on the back of the drive. These pegs fit over small metal conductors and assign the IDE drive's role. The user can remove the jumpers by prying them off of their current conductors with his/her fingernails or a small screwdriver. The jumpers can then be relocated to other conductors in order to assign a role to the IDE drive. The user should be very careful while handling the Maxtor jumpers as they are fragile and very important.maxtor-jumper-settings.jpegEach IDE drive model is different but most have three basic settings: Cable Select, Master, and Slave. Each setting is described below.

Cable Select

Cable Select is a Maxtor jumper setting that is the default for virtually all IDE drives. Cable Select allows an IDE drive to naturally become either a Master or Slave depending on the cable used. Cable Select is a neutral setting and is also often used when a user only has one IDE device installed or when a device is neither a Master or a Slave, such as a Floppy Disk drive.

hope this helps

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.

I want to add another hard drive and need to know how to set the jumpers on my maxtor 90645d3 please help.ty


if you want to boot from this drive, please set the jumper to the master position.

if this drive is for additional storage, please set the jumper to slave. and make sure 1st hard drive is set to master.

if this is the only drive in the system, please set the jumper to single or remove the jumper.

there will be a chart telling you which pins are for which setting in the jumper area, which is between the data plug and the power plug on the back of your HDD.

main thing that will cause drives to not work is 2 jumpers on the same cable and they both are set to the same thng.. i.e. master/master or slave/slave. also, if one is set to single drive it will likely bypass the slave drive.

Select the maxtor HDD as master by setting the Jumper to the extreme left of the hdd; i.e. next to the data cable.
Remove all jumpers from the other HDD which you want to put as slave.

Good day! I have a A93.0500 Maxtor 6L060J3 hard drive. I no longer have the manual for setting the jumpers. What are the jumper settings for making this drive the master? Currently it is the slave dri


it should show you on the actual drive what the settings are - if not you will have to look on the maxtor website - they should have a support section where you can download the manual for that drive

There should be a diagram showing how you should set the jumper. Set it according to what you want it to be and it should begin to should up. You can set it as Master, Slave, or Cable Select.
