N256 40 gig hdd jumper settings - Model 5T040H4

Answers :

It often depends what OS you are using. Linux i.e doesn't go well with cable select and I had to just play around with the jumpoer settings t get this drive to work. It is an old drive (~2000/2001), so it's slow and loud. I could not find any information on the Seagate nor Maxtor web sites. So try this;

The jumpers look like this:
: : : . :

If you bridge the most left pair, it is set to master.
If you bridge the second left pair, it is set to cable select.
No jumpers: set to slave.

"Cable select" only works if the IDE cable supports this setting. If you want to play around with it, look here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
This drive comes with the jumper already installed in the master setting. The jumper is in the leftmost position, when removed the disk is set for a slave. The next position is for cable select, closed on, open off. The other positions are for factory use.
