SOURCE: Maxtor Model 32049H2 Slave jumper

I would guess that it is a diamond max driver, and therefore the jumper setting for slave should be no jumper at all. But in case I am mistaken, here are all the jumper setups for Maxtor drives, choose the one that looks like your setup and then choose the correct Slave setting:

What settings in the bios with maxtor as slve and quantom fireball as master


There are no settings in the BIOS for setting up master ans slave drives.
The hard drives have jumpers for configuring master and Slave drives.
If your hard drives are IDE/PATA hard drives and you intend to install these drives on the same IDE cable then you can set the jumper on Quantum drive as Master and the Maxtor on Slave.
I suggest that you install the Quantum as master on the 1st IDE cable and the Maxtor as Master on the 2nd IDE cable for maximum data transfer rate between the two hard drived.
Any other devices that are connected to these IDE cables will need to be jumpered as Slave devices.

Floydage, some ribbons are different in the orentation of pin#1. try a differnent cable...but you said that you tried that right.? have you tried to make sure you have the latist BIOS. It could be this paticuler drive have a different bios it self...and yes drive's do have chip's and software in them. If nothing ells just load the OS to that drive anyway and than change the drive letters in windows.

N256 40 gig hdd jumper settings - Model 5T040H4


It often depends what OS you are using. Linux i.e doesn't go well with cable select and I had to just play around with the jumpoer settings t get this drive to work. It is an old drive (~2000/2001), so it's slow and loud. I could not find any information on the Seagate nor Maxtor web sites. So try this;

The jumpers look like this:
: : : . :

If you bridge the most left pair, it is set to master.
If you bridge the second left pair, it is set to cable select.
No jumpers: set to slave.

"Cable select" only works if the IDE cable supports this setting. If you want to play around with it, look here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Two Maxtor hard drives - Master 6Y080L0 and Slave 6K040L0 Jumper set as Master for the 80 and no jumper for the 40. These are the identical settings shown printed on both drives. I beleive the...


Essential you have one license allowed and it checks the primary HD via its 'utilities function', and only does a general scan of slave. Since you did not mention Norton version nor your OS general assist here. You might consider going into Options and having it scan both HDs, worked for me.
