    What Operating System are you running?
    Do you know the motherboard make/model?
    Are both hard drives (current master and new slave) connected on the same cable?

Hello,
You will just Change the pata cable as new or fit to HDD tightly and restart the PC.If the problem is same, your HDD parturition has been corrupted unfortunately. so you need to format again from >my computer>manege>disk manager >and format.
If you don't want to loss data dowmnload ontrack boot cd and recover the partition.

You will need to go into the control panel, administrator, and then disk drive manager. once there you will need to initialize the new drive and then format the drive before the system will see it. Format using the NTFS file system only if you are using XP, After the format is completed reboot the system and your new slave drive should show up just fine and you will be able to log into it or use explorer to view it.

Setting Maxtor HD as Slave.


Howdy,

First "easy" one I've had in hours....

Just pull the J50 pin out of the jumper block and PRESTO it'll be a slave the OFF position literally reffers to having the J50 pin off of the hard drive. Just a note though, I highly recommend using a peice of scotch tape to affix the pin to a nearby surface cause there a real pain to find if and when you need em again.

How to detect the hardrive?


Hi,

setup the first drive as slave ( sometimes No Jumper ) then the furthest away drive as Master.
If this fails, and you have 2 IDE Slots on the motherboard. ( Primary/Secondary ) Put 1 drive on primary as Slave. And DVD Rom As Master ( same Cable ) Then put second drive On Secondary IDE Slot. ( Set As Master Or Slave )
If none of these solutions Work For you, check to see if Both Channels are activated in the Bios.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.

Cannot get 2 IDE devices to show in bios.


Does the computer have two IDE channels? If so set the Maxtor HDD as master on the primary channel and the DVD drive as master on the secondary channel. Also right click on My Computer, left click on Manage and left click on Disk Management and see if the drives show up there. Also check the boot order in BIOS.

When you into the bios settings choose default bios settings and save, reboot the machine and have a look in the bios again to see if the bios has picked the drive up
