Need pin setting for N256 HD by Maxtor


Read the printed label gummed onto the top of the disk-drive, for the possible settings:
* MA(ster)
* SL(ave)
* C(able) S(elect)

Try the 'CS' position for the jumper, and connect the drive.

Is a MAXTOR N256 20 GB HARD DRIVE HD model #92048D8 compatible with laptops? It's an IDE


I would say yes. Most IDE hard drives are compatible, all that's needed is the laptop to hard drive adapter. They come in various flavors.... ide to sata (with power converter), ide to usb, ide to ide (44 pin female to 40 pin male), take your pick. :)

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.

Can not find Jumper diagram on N256 Maxtor model 33073H3


Hello there soggytundra, here's your GEEK-steer ...

Despite your question being posted here 5 days ago, I'll presume you still (and if not, then someone else will) need the answer ...

Virtually all Maxtor drives adhere to the following general rules concerning jumper settings (at least up until now):

= MASTER (M): Insert jumper over the FIRST COMPLETE pair of VERTICAL pins.

Examples:
Xoo o oXooo Xooo
Xoooo Xooo Xooo

= CABE SELECT (CS): Insert jumper over the SECOND COMPLETE pair of VERTICAL pins.

Examples:
oXo o oXooo oXoo
oXooo Xooo oXoo

= SLAVE (S): Do NOT insert ANY jumpers (or at least NONE VERTICALLY, but you may HORIZONTALLY across the TOP row as simply a means of storing the jumper).

Examples:
ooo o ooooo oooo oooXX oooXX ooXX
ooooo oooo oooo ooooo oooo oooo

TIP: As a general rule, if you KNOW the role of the jumper capable device you're installing, it is better to NOT use Cable Select (CS). In this case you do, therefore it would be best to specifically designate the (33073H3) drive as (secondary) Slave [and your other (primary) drive as Master].

Good luck and GOD-speed. Please post back if you have any further questions, and/or just to let me (and others in similar need) know how well this steers to solution.

Hard drive was freezing up .i have already replaced and reloaded


On the back of the hdd you will see a row of little pins in groups of 2 vertically. It will be marked either right above the pins or on the top of the hdd above the pins, ma, sl, cs. The setting for slave is sl. Put the plastic jumper cap on those 2 pins & it is set for slave. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
