It's a standard 128mb IDE hard drive from the early 1990s. It should work, although extremely slowly on any IBM compatible computer that has an IDE interface. You would need to contact Maxtor through their parent company SeaGate for jumper information if it isn't listed on the case sticker.

You might want to try the jumper settings in this diagram. I don't guarantee that they will work, but they aren't listing that specific model on their support site. You'll probably need to contact Seagate directly to get the information if none of these work.



Also check out the jumper blocks in this PDF document.

I just have to ask. What the heck are you going to be using that on and for? 128 MEGA Bytes of space isn't enough to do much. You can barely run pure DOS and Windows 3.x on that amount of space. It doesn't support any form of UDMA at all so it probably will have a throughput of about 2 to 5 MB/S.

Oh, it's just something we are experimenting with in computer club. We wanted to see if a Dell Optiplex could run it. Though with so little space, even if it is recognized as a hard drive, we won't be able to use it for anything really. I was already aware of that.

Good luck with it. Let me know if you have any more questions. I was around and using computers back when that was considered hi tech.
