Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Maxtor D540X-4D 60GB 5400 RPM HDD is not detected on my computer management?i tried to use another PC but same problem occured. What should i do?


Answers :

There is a jumper located near the power plug and on the label there should be a configuration table. Primary, slave or cable select. Double check to see the data ribon cable type the newer ones 7600 RPM I believe has a dense wire ribon texture for faster data transfer, I did not believe it when I first saw it eather.. I believe that may have to use the older standard ribon data cable. And check the config of that jumper
