Any of the Sata ports on the mainboard is sufficient but go for "0" or "1" because they may already be enabled. Couple things though... 1.) go into set-up and make sure the port is enabled 2.) make sure you are using the correct data cable for your Hard drive. (trust me on this one, I learned the hard way!)

My Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 80GB ATA/133 HDD with a X-Media USB2.0 TO IDE & SATA cable adapter


Check (under high light) flat IDE cable pins on the mini-board. Many pins, and many chance to loose contact.

I wish to upgrade my Maxtor 32049H2 HDD (20gb) to a Maxtor DiamondMax 10 6B300S0 (300gb) HDD, The KM400-M2-3.0 Motherbourd specs indicate that the HDD is compatable other than the cabling to the Newer...


The new HDD uses a SATA data interface as well as a SATA power interface. You will need a SATA cable as well as a power supply that supports the SATA power connectors. Since this is an older machine you will probably need to buy a SATA cable and a Molex to SATA power connector. This should cover any cabling issues that you are having.

Maxtor DiamondMax 11 is a SATA Hardisk and you need SATA External Case. After adding the Harddisk, all you have to do is connect it to the system via the cable of the external case. There is no need for additional drivers/ CD as all the external harddisks are 'plug and play'and the Operating System detects them automatically.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Change a hard drive


As a general rule, SATA drive like the DiamondMax Plus 9 160 GB Hard Drive can be made either master or slave by just plugging the drive cable to the appropriate alternative SATA port on the motherboard without changing anything on the drive. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE PC FROM THE MAIN POWER FIRST! Most motherboard will have two such ports on the motherboard in close proximity to each other (just follow the 'flat' usually red or yellow cable from the SATA drive towards the motherboard to locate the ports). Hope it helps.

My hard drive is going bad. So says my HP Compaq dc7100 SFF


Instead of posting here, why don't you look for a dealer.
You can buy hard drives just about anywhere now - and it doesn't have to be Maxtor.

What new HDD will match my Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8?


Mark,
You can use any size HDD in your computer as a slave and it does not have to be an exact match for the maxtor. You will however need the make sure that the connections on the new drive match. For example SATA drives will not attache to an IDE cable and vice versa. The drive that you mentioned is an IDE style drive so unless your MOBO has SATA connectors on it you will need to buy an IDE/EIDE drive.

Maxtor diamondmax plus 9 6y080l0


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
