Maxtor 31536H2 Jumper Settings

I have a Maxtor 31536H2 Hard Drive 20GB, and I am trying to add another HD so I have more HD space on my computer. The S/N N20987 manufactured in 05JUL2000, and I am trying to use it as a master and my new HD as my slave drive. It shows the new drive in the BIOS , but does not show it in the "my computer" section. It shows only:
Jumper Master/Single Slave
J50 On Off

It does not have a diagram to show the jumper settings on it. Can you show me a diagram of how the jumper settings should be on the drive. I have tried many things, and I am done trying. I need help.

No cd included with hard drive, how do i install?


normally you dont need any software to install the HD if its a newer computer (last couple of years) just check your jumper settings, it should show you on the HD where to put the jumper for master / slave.

If your putting it in as a second HD for more space you will want to put the jumper on the back of the drive to "slave" and attach it to the same cable as the hard drive in your computer already.

Hi XX,

To my knowledge, if you are installing the Maxtor DiamondMax® 31536H2 as a slave, there are no jumpers required as shown below

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.

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.

Maxtor 500gb internal hard drive


Hi,

To fix/restore to full capacity, you may need to delete the existing partition and re-partition then reformat again.

Most old computers have limitations on the CMOS/BIOS as to how big the capacity of the HD that it can recognize.  Windows however would recognize big HD size and therefore can partition, format and check.

Alternately, a third party disk utility program may be used such as Partition Magic.

Hope this be of some use/help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
