Hi ronrayhall,

I installed a maxtor hard drive, and they are shipped with a default of cable select. If you have this hard drive you dont need to change the jumpers. You do need to make sure however your original hard drive is also on cable select.

If you dont have a maxtor, alot of manuf. print the jumper settings on the hard drive, if not you might have to find the install instructions on the web for that drive. There is a good listing of Jumper settings at this website if its easier for you than searching the web. http://drivejumper.com/

What is the jumper pin placement to make a slave of a DiamondMax Plus 9, 80GB hard drive?


The manual is linked below and section 3.3.1 covers jumper settings.
The slave setting shows the park position so you have a jumper on the drive so you can reconfigure it later.

A quick answer is that the slave setting is no jumper at all on the jumper pins.

How do i configure this hard drive for a 'slave' ?


Hello

Ok, you ill be able to see the jumper configuration on the hard drive itself. Here is an example on what the jumper diagram will look like on a hard drive.

Now, all you need to do is to have a look on your hard dive and see where you need to place the jumper for the slave configuration. Here is what a jumper looks like.

After you have done this, you only need to plug the hard drive into your pc.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

I want to add another hard drive and need to know how to set the jumpers on my maxtor 90645d3 please help.ty


if you want to boot from this drive, please set the jumper to the master position.

if this drive is for additional storage, please set the jumper to slave. and make sure 1st hard drive is set to master.

if this is the only drive in the system, please set the jumper to single or remove the jumper.

there will be a chart telling you which pins are for which setting in the jumper area, which is between the data plug and the power plug on the back of your HDD.

main thing that will cause drives to not work is 2 jumpers on the same cable and they both are set to the same thng.. i.e. master/master or slave/slave. also, if one is set to single drive it will likely bypass the slave drive.

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.

Need master slave configuration


Hello,

You should have a jumper configuration written somewhere on the front (up) side of the hard Disk ... Look there, or look just around the Pins... Look for M, S, CS (Master, Slave, Cable Select)

Master slave jumper settings on 250gb Maxline Plus II SATA


There are no master/slave settings on SATA drives because each drive has its own cable. The drive order is determined by what SATA port they are plugged into, or by the BIOS configuration.

Strapping or Jumpering for slave


You need the system info for the laptop you are using to see if a 2nd hdd needs to be set as slave or set in the cable select mode. Either right above the jumper pins or on the top of the hdd above the pins you should see 3 groups of 2 pins. They will be marked, ma, cs, & sl. They may not be in this order as each hdd manufacturer is different but all will have those 3 markings. If you set as slave cover the 2 jumper pins marked sl. For cable select cover the 2 pins marked cs. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Diamond max 20 hard drive won't install - jumper problems - want as slave, my old one as master


on the back of the drive there should be a black, white or yellow jumper. If you look very carfully at the back of the harddrive where the jumper is, it will tell you which position you need to have the jumper in for slave and which position you need to have it in for master. If it is already in the master position, carefully pull it out then push it back into the correct position to act as slave. Some hardrives simpley have a M for master and a S for slave while other harddrive will actually have the words. I hope this helps.
