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.

Hi fkjedi,

Most Maxtor drives all use the same configuration, but HERE a link to explain and show you how to configure each drive. You can print it out and save this for future use.

Thanks

I have a maxtor 51536h3 harddrive, I need to know the jumper settings for running single as a master and slave to transfer the data to another harddrive. THANKS


If you have two hard drives on the same IDE cable, then set one as Master and the other as slave.Set which ever one has your operating system on it as the master (though it doesn't really matter). Once you get them both plugged in and your computer boots up. You should see both drives and can transfer data as you see fit.

I need the jumper positions f9or the maxtor 256


I'd need a better model number, however the general jumper for most maxtor drives is J50 on = master, off = slave or cable select.
/j50 is usually closest to the data cable and the jumper goes on vertically.

I have a maxtor quantum fireball plus as 20.5 hard drive. i want to set it to slave. how do i set the jumpers?


on maxtor drives, you will find the jumper within a cluster of 9 pins. if you look on the bottom of the drive, on the circuit board, the pins should be labeled "ms" "cs" and such. the "ms" and "cs" stand for "master" and "cable select". you rarely use the true "slave" setting anymore, more often than not' "slave" drives are set to "cable select" and are attached to the middle, slave position on the ide cable. in "cable select" mode, the cable decides what device is master and what is slave, depending upon the devices' position on the ide cable.

to set the drive to "slave", set the jumper so that it only has 1 pin under it, and doesnt actually jump any pins, or just take the jumper out. only use the "slave" setting if the "master" device on the same ide cable is actually set to "master".

if the master device is actually set to "cable select" then you will have to set the slave device also to "cable select" and the middle position on the ide cable will set it automatically to be a slave. , instead of using the jumper to make it the "slave".

to set the drive as "cable select", which is what i would recommend, use the jumper to connect the 2 pins which are labeled "cs", the 2nd position from the bottom position on most older maxtor drives, and attach this hard drive to the middle connector of the ide cable.

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...


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.

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.

What are the jumper pins on my Maxtor 6l200m0 and 6l200s0 sata drives for?


To control how the computer separates and assigns the drive's working order and placement.

The most basic positions are:

Master - By default the motherboard will boot to this drive first, therefore it's the "master"

Slave- What it sounds like. It's under the "Master" and isn't booted by default.

Cable Select (CS) - What it sounds like as well. The cable that goes from the motherboard to the hard drives. There are TWO positions at which the cable connects to the drives based on their placement. That placement determines which drive is master and which is slave. The advantage of this mode is it's ease of use. (Use only when you've got two hard drives)

That's the basics of the basics. There is A LOT more to those jumpers...but you won't ever need to know what so don't ask ;)

Let me know if you have any other questions.

PC will not see Maxtor 80GB DiamondMax Plus 9 as seconary slave.


Hi,

Two thing,

First, never use a Maxtor HDD as a slave to a CDROM/DVD, doesn't work and tends to cause stability issues. So try swapping the jumper on the CD/DVD to slave and setting the Maxtor to Master, this should get it working.

Second, if it is showing up as 33GB, you have the Jumpers set to limit capacity(designed to avoid troubles on older systems. If this is the case, you likely have a single jumper in the center row of pins between the power and data cables. If it only works as master at the moment, then you likely have the neter row(limit size pins) and the one closest to the data cable(Master Pin) both plugged in.

Change your DVD/CD to slave, remove the limiting jumper and ensure the Master jumper is installed on the Maxtor, then be sure the end connector on the ATA(likely marked master) is plugged into the Maxtor and the middle connector(Slave) is plugged into the DVD/CD, this should have you all fixed up.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Hi i have a 10.1gb Maxtor model 31024H1 IDE hard drive and i need the jumper setting for slave


slave is NO jumpers at all


(Master) - The vertical jumper over the J50 pins is configuring the drive as a Master. The horizontal jumper over the J48 and J46 pins is in the Storage position.
(Master with CLJ) - The vertical jumper over the J50 pins is configuring the drive as a Master. The vertical jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
(Slave) - No jumper is required to configure the drive as a Slave. The jumpers over the J48, J46, J44 and J42 positions are both in the storage position.
(Slave with CLJ) - The jumper over the J44 and J42 positions is in the storage position. The jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
(Cable Select) - The jumper over the J48 position is configuring the drive for Cable Select. The jumper over the J44 and J42 pins is in the storage position.
(Cable Select with CLJ) - The jumper over the J48 position is configuring the drive for Cable Select. The jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
