    Cable select.
    If you have another drive and don't know if its slave or master, set your
    new drive as CS

    Just got a new maxtor HD today. The junper settings diagram shows DS(Master)
    and CS enabled. What is CS enabled?

    They supply the jumper so that you don't have to go find one (your
    average home user does not have jumpers kicking around)

    I want the maxtor as master and the old one as slave so which setting would
    the jumper need to be?

    Also I have noticed a small single jumper (Not bridging any of the
    connections just covering one) What is that doing?

    What you need to do is change the old drive to slave.
    Look on the label of the old drive to find the correct pins to cover with
    the jumper.
    With the new drive, put the jumper on the pins for master. Look at the
    diagram on the top of the drive for the correct combination.
    Some drives have 2 jumpers, i believe the second one is to limit the drive
    to 32 gig for older motherboards. I could be wrong.
    Could you post the model numbers of both drives and i can look them up and
    provide more details.

    that won't work

    if cable select is used *both* drives must have the jumpers set to "cs"

    then the drive closest to the mobo is master

    This link shows you exactly where to put the jumper.
    The small one that covers one pin does nothing by the looks of things.
    Look at the top row of diagrams not the ones with CLJ underneath.

    To answer your question, CS is "Cable Select". This will only work if you
    have the type of hard drive cable that has a twist in it, similar to a
    floppy drive cable.

    In order to have your new drive as master, and your old drive as slave, put
    the jumper on the Master setting on the new drive, and on the Slave setting
    on the old drive. This should work just fine.

    Hope this helps,
