Is it the only drive installed? If so, you may have to reinstall windows from the genuine disk. Check cable to motherboard too and come back to me for more if this fails

Will a Quantum Fireball hdd replace a Sata hdd.Both are 3.5 and 5/12v or do you need to re configure them?


SATA (serial ATA) is a connection type, not a brand of hard drive. Any brand of hard drive will replace any other, as long as they are both SATA drives. The data and power connections are standard between drives, as are mounting dimensions. Normally, with SATA drives there are no jumpers or other configuration you need to deal with. Each SATA drive has its own connection to the motherboard, so you don't need to set master/slave jumpers like you would on the parallel ATA drives using the wide data cable.

Quantum Fireball lct 30gig not recognized in Dell Dimension 3000


Turns out this particular drive needs TWO jumpers on it, to set it to CS. I received it used with a single jumper in the Master position, but after checking the Maxtor/Quantum website, it listed the jumper positions and showed the second jumper. As soon as I installed the TWO jumpers in the correct position, the Dimension 3000 booted right up and let me reinstall Windows. I had scoured the internet for many hours looking for a solution, none solved it until I decided to check the manufacturers website. Always start there!- Solved!

Problem putting a 30 gig quantum lct 15 3.5"series as a slave


Did you switch the jumper config back to Master or CableSelect before trying to install them as a single drive? Also check the Maxtor website, (they owned Quantum too), for the correct jumper settings. Some of these drives (like the Quantum Fireball lct series) need TWO jumpers not just one.That was the trick that fixed mine from not being recognized by the Bios or the Windows setup disk....I got it used with only a single jumper, but it needed two to put it Cable Select mode.
