Theres a couple of different buffer settings you can try. Your BIOS settings may let you get away with it.

Sata is a serial based hard drive. You may have some limitations to what you can set.

Check your mothboard or computer user guide for the bios settings concerning buffering for hard drives.

Where do i place the jumpers to set a maxtor model 53073U6 to run as slave?


See the sticker on the HDD. There is written the pins, you have to put the jumper.That should be on the 2nd set from the IDE end. Just removing the jumper should make it slave too. Run it without jumper. Thanks

Unable to brows the Maxtor External HDD


Hi

If the password is ATA then you will not be able to gain access to your user data without either knowing it or having the tools which can access the HDD in the SA and not user area.

You may need to speak with a DR firm for advice.

No longer recognized by Win Me PC


UNINSTALL THE HARD WARE FROM THE SYSTEM ..UTILITIES FOLDER IN CONTROL PANEL
IF ITS RECOGNISED THERE IT MEANS THE DRIVE NEEDS THE SAME WIN ME DRIVERS WHICH COULD BE CORRUPT
YOU CAN TRY TO CONFIG IN SETUP TOO.
CONFIGURE THE HD IN HARD DISK DETECTION NOT AS AUTOMATIC IN BIOS , BUT AS LBA MODE DEFINING THE CYLINDERS AND THE HEADS AND OTHER DATA WHICH IS USUALLY WRITTEN ON THE HD WHITE COVER.
