Master to Slave on Maxtor HD

  alltime 08:26 06 Jun 2004

The maxtor hd has 4 pins at the top (1 missing ) and 5 pins at the bottom. The markings on the drive are Jumper j50-- Master/single--- slave off. Can anyone tell me what pins have to have the jumper on to make this a slave disc.

Nice simple answer - none. Leave it "unpinned" for slave.

Thanks for the help, tesman said leave unpinned, and eastender says click here , which shows a bridge on the top row which one of the pins is missing. what effect does putting a jumper on just 1 pin. Im learning guys bu really grateful for the direction.

A jumper electrically links two pins so putting a jumper on one pins does nothing.

As Tesman says 'slave' on a maxtor is acheived by having no jumper.

It's somewhere to park the jumper.
