I posted earlier for someone else, I hv an old quantum fireball plus AS QMP20000AS-A
this is how I read the config table on the sticker: Position HDD and labels up and jumper pins facing you.
one pin will be far left, kinda stand alone, then 4 pair of pins vertical, one ech. top to bottom ,
left to right I read:
far left set of pins are blank, No meaning given?
second pair jumped verticaly is "PK" or Slave/parking pos.
third is"CS" Cable Select for master/slave.
and last set/pair is "DS" for Master.
I only have the one jumper and all configs show a vertical or top to bottm jumper.
Mine is in the Slave 'cause I only use for storage and can acces it thru win-eplorer.
If this doesn't help your drive may be toast, good luck.

Most Maxtor Drives have jumper setting so that if "Jumper 50" is set; the two pins farthest from the power jack, is Master Drive. No pin jumper set, Slave or Cable Select. I hope this helps.

My computer cannot recognise the hard drive


Are there any other harddrives installed on the computer...or is this a new harddrive...
If it's a second harddrive...then you have to set the jumpers accordingly...if it's a new harddrive...it should of came with a Cd and or floppy (depending on how old your computer is). You need to install that cd first, so it can tell your bios/cmos that there is a new HDD and the software will tell it to recognize it. Let me know

5T020h2 jumper setup


No jumper is used on the J50 pins, when using the Maxtor 5T020H2 IDE harddrive, as a Slave harddrive.

In otherwords do not use a jumper on any of the jumper pins.

This is a PDF file of the Harddrive Specifications of the 5T020H2, 5T010H1, 5T030H3, 5T040H4, and 5T060H6 Maxtor IDE harddrives,
from Seagate. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)

http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/maxtor/en_us/documentation/manuals/dm_plus_60_ultra_ata_manual.pdf



The Jumper Settings are in Chapter 2, Page 5 (2-5)
Looking at the page number for the PDF file it's on Page 15.

Jumper settings


If you try to enter in safe mode or at last known config and the laptop reboots or freezes then you need to reinstall the operating system if you want to use that hard drive on hp pavilion a1000n. The laptops have different chipset and XP requires to be the same or similar chipset to boot properly.

Maxtor PLUS 8 7200RPM IDE ATA 133 40GB hard drive. Do i need jumpers and software for the install of this harddrive and if so here can i get. Thanks j


are you mounting it as the only drive or with another one... if you are mounting it as a slave usually you don't need a jumper... the jumper setting will hopefully be on the sticker.

xp and up will autodect the drive..

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.
