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.

Dear soviet guy

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.

Hi,
Refer to the following schematic and put the jumper. Also make sure that your harddrive is detected and in the system BIOS.

Need jumper settings for both hard drives. PCb board has been replaced. Cannot rememebr the orgional settings.


Master (M) on the harddrive that came with the computer, Slave, (S, or SL), on the 2nd harddrive.

Don't see M, S, and CS, on the label of the harddrive? (CS is Cable Select)
Sometimes it's right on the edge, where the 40 pin flat ribbon cable plugs in. It will be letters raised in the plastic, of the harddrive body.

To find where to set the jumpers for these harddrives, I suggest you look at the label. Since you had the Printed Circuit board replaced, I'm guessing you know who made it, and what the model number is.

Some harddrive manufacturers,
1.Western Digital
2.Maxtor, (Maxtor is owned by Seagate now)
3.Seagate
4.Hitachi
5.NEC (No longer in business)
6.Quantum, (sold out to Maxtor)

Here are three links that are videos, and may help with setting jumpers, and setting up those IDE harddrives. (IDE is also referred to as EIDE, ATA, and PATA)
(If you have SATA harddrives, do not touch the jumpers, if any are present! These are for the factory. With a SATA harddrive, you can plug it/them, into ANY available SATA header, {Connector}, on the motherboard. Doesn't matter!)

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.
