For main drive, you can install it without any jumper you will need to jumper the second one, if in need.

If it is a S-ATA drive there are none jumpers, first SATA drive connects to SATA1 on mainboard, the second on SATA2.

How do I make use of a Maxtor Hard Drive. Should it have a disc to instal?


Dear shirley403

Yes, you need an operating system disk if you use the Maxtor hard disk as the main patision to your computer.
but, if you only use it to backup drive, set the jumper to slave.
If you are using external cassing, jumper settings depending on the situation, try to enter the master jumper setting,
if it fails in effect, put to slave or cable select


hopefully this can help...

TQ

Jumper settings for a maxtor N256 master with slave


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.

Where do i place the jumpers to set a maxtor model 53073U6 to run as slave?


See the sticker on the HDD. There is written the pins, you have to put the jumper.That should be on the 2nd set from the IDE end. Just removing the jumper should make it slave too. Run it without jumper. Thanks

Vista won't read Maxtor N256 HD as through USB-IDE cable


So donot take any action to your Maxtor and Try to find a DR company and recovery the data.Maybe the firmware is having some problems.Usually the tools called HD Doctor from SalvationDATA can deal with the firmware problems.

I have a Maxtor Model 54098H8 hard drive. I would like to use it as a slave drive. What are the jumper settings to use it as a slave drive?


Hello,
To use as slave, it is no jumpers. Take off all jumpers and it could be used as slave.

Thanks,
