Question about Maxtor Hard Drive

1 Answer

I have an old (1995) maxtor disk model 71626AP out of my old computer. I think I want to install it as a slave in my windows/XP desktop computer. Other than removing the jumper at J20, is there anything else I need to do? Will windows recognize the "new" drive and find the necessary driver? Anything else I need to know? Thanks - TOY

Windows will recognize it. Just be sure the other drive is jumpered as master/primary and the old drive is jumpered as slave/secondary and that they connect to the same IDE cable.

One way:
* remove the disk-drive from your computer
* install a different disk-drive (any old, 4GB or larger, disk-drive will work)
* install Windows onto that disk
* install anti-virus software onto that disk
* reconnect the previous disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive
* launch the anti-virus software, targetting that "slave" disk-drive
* shutdown
* disconnect the different disk-drive
* boot from the original disk-drive, now that it is virus-free

Hi:
You didn't say what kind of computer you are installing this drive in, or what operating system, but I can tell by your problem that you are trying to install it with a Windows xp, service pack 1 or older system disk. Often, the older windows disk will not let you see the entire contents of a large disk, and especially a problem if a smaller Hard drive is still present in the system.
A good solution to fix this problem is this:
Temporarily unplug your Seagate hard drive. Download the Maxtor installation software from their website, and then run the installation program. Once you got that, then power down the computer, and do your master slave set up again, and hopefully you will have better results

Jumper off will set the drive to slave. If you can connect both drives to the same ribbon cable with the master on the end & the slave to the second connector. Look at your bios as win is booting up to see if shows the drive as slave, you will not be able to copy windows as a operating system off of the drive, but should be able to copy files.

Good luck on your endevors.

There are four Jumper settings on a Maxtor:

(got it from http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/windows/t-32378-Windows-XP-Home--No-boot-device-help.html)

posted by by mr.smit:

"The 2nd row, is for DS(Master): only 1 drive in PC, or the drive that you want to boot up from.
The 3rd row, is CS Enabled: Cable select, the computer desides wich harddisk is master and wich one is slave
The 4th is cap limit: windows cannot run on harddisks that are to big, like 300gb, so putting jumper on cap limit (capacity limit) makes it smaller for windows to use it.
The 5th row has no use, or i don't know what it does, either of that 2."

I would like to add about the DS (Slave) setting. It is used if there is another drive present on the system which you want to boot from. It will become a spare Hard Disk.

Here is a picture of a maxtor drive indicating where to find model number and jumper settings.

Can't format or create partition......


It maybe that your motherboard bios cannot support 250GB and needs an update, but caution applies here. The other problem maybe that you need to use the hardrive on the 'CS' (Cable select setting). Lastly if you already have a pc running, use this drive as the slave the go to the Maxtor website to make use of the diagnostic/formatting and partition tools.

Can't format or create partition......


you can try an FDISK form a windows boot disk, but you may need to read up a little on how to use it. or maxtor has a program available on their web sit called powermax that can try to find & repair possible problems. powermax may be the best & easiest way to go. good luck.
