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.

If you have you primary HDD set on Cable select, and the secondary HDD is set on anything other then Cable select (with the jumper settings on the back of the HDD) then there will be an error.. Also, if you primary is set to master/slave and the same for the secondary, it will cause problems.

Another thought, if one of your drives is SATA and the other IDE, if the IDE is set to master, there may be an issue as SATA HDD's will try to post as the master drive

Sata as boot and install eide drive as d:or e:


You can slave the EIDE hard drive off of the CD Drive, as long has it is also EIDE. There should be a flat grey ribbon cable plugged into the back of your CD Drive. That IDE ribbon cable should have 2 connectors on it, one of them should be plugged into the CD Drive.

If it does not have 2 connectors, then go buy a new IDE ribbon cable that has 2 connectors, they are cheap. Or ask a friend, he/she might have extra, I always do.

Make sure you have the jumper settings correct on both drives. One will be the master, the other should be the slave. Or set both to "select select" and let the computer decide. The jumper is a little black jumper that connects 2 pins together on back of the drive. This tells the drive if it is a master, slave or cable select.

There should be a sticker diagram on each drive denoting the correct pin-jumper setting.

One other thing, when you hook up 2 drives to 1 IDE cable, both drives share the bandwidth. If you are using one of the drives, don't try to use the other, major performance slow-down.

Also, you don't need to slave the drive. You can get a Hard drive enclosure and make the drive an external drive connected by USB. They are also cheap, but make sure the hard drive has a partition and is formatted before installing it in the enclosure.
