the maxtor site at click here gives most of the info you need ...just id your drive and the info is available on the knowledge base.

PS it does say that the most common option for a slave drive is NO jumper

If your master drive already fitted uses Cable select, then change it to be Master - and leave your old one without a jumper, as Slave, as suggested above.

It doesn't matter what cable you have, you can always use Master and Slave settings.
