  1. Mechanical sata hard drive with jumper setting?


    I have a sata hard drive "samsung sp2004c" and i noticed the hard drive causing a problem such as my system taking longer to startup and using crystal disk info where it says if the drive is good it says unknown and is greyed out.

    Is there something im not doing right?
    Ps: the jumper settings doesnt have the peg to set slave, master etc and as far as i know those settings dont mater when it comes to sata....right?

    :)

  2. Windows no longer recognizes second internal hard drive

    Thanks but I am using SATA hard drives and, unilke IDE drives, there are no jumpers to be set. The internal SATA hard drives are connected to a hard drive SATA port on the motherboard with a data cable in the same way as the main drive.

  3. Mechanical Hard Drive A:\

    Proceed with the steps I gave you to test the hard drive to know for sure it's condition.

    If it passes wipe it and try formatting as suggested. If it fails initializing as MBR then try GPT (for data).

    Mechanical sata hard drive with jumper setting?

    Jumper Setting on Diamond Max 10 SATA

    The problem is that the jumper on this HD has come off and I dont know where to put it back on correctly.

    I have a Maxtor Diamond Max 10 6V300f0. The only refernece to the jumper settings is in the MAXTOR PDF manual, which states:
    "To ensure proper operation of your drive, do not use the jumper pins to the right of the SATA interface cable." (Page 8)
    Maxtor External Hard Drives and SSDs | Maxtor

    Furthermore, the PDF shows only 3 pins in the diagram , wheres my HD has 4 pins.


    Can anybody enlighten me? Its stupid, cos the manual says how great this SATA drive is cos you dont have to worry about jumper settings for slave, master , CS etc, and yet theyve given me a another set of jumpers to figure out - just when i was getting my head around the last lot!
