Seagate HDD

  Robotic_Rob 00:34 30 May 2007


I have just bought a Seagate HDD. Its a STM380211AS, ive searched on the internet and ive found its a Diamondmax 20. But when i look at the seagate website i cant find the correct jumper setting diagrams. It appears like there is 4 pins on the back of the HDD for the jumper settings. Could anybody shed any light on the matter?

Do SATA HDDs have jumpers??

STM380211AS is a SATA hardrive. The pins are to either make it SATA 1 or SATA 2. It will come with them set to SATA 1.
SATA hardrives do not have jumpers for master slave as they are connected individualy to the motherboard.

If SATA HDD's dont have jumper settings, then why do my Maxtor Diamond 9 have the jumper pins that brundle found?

The problem is that i have four HDD's. I can connect three of them and no problems. As soon as i connect the forth HDD my computer doesnt want to boot from the HDD with windows. I have two Maxtor HDD's and two Seagates. The Seagates wont work together, which is why i wondered about the jumper settings.

Diamond 20 and other sata jumpers

Jumpers on a sata drive allow the drive to be restricted to sata150 speed for boards with older controllers and also allow the size to be "clipped" so will work with older operating systems.

So my problem isnt a master/slave problem. Does anybody know what might be causing my problem?

In BIOS check that ALL the SATA ports are Enabled.
