Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
If you leave it at cable select the cable will set the drive to either master or slave depending on where it is on the cable, the first or second connector. Just make sure any other drive hooked up is set to cable select.
Your best option is to actually set each drive to master and slave. Each drive should show you where to put the jumper. Make sure you only have one master and slave though.
Which jumper to use? The one thats already on the HD...?
