I use 40 wire cables for even the ATA 100 7200 rpm drives. Works the same as 80 wire cables.
Sometimes, holes in the IDE cables indicate a defective cable.
I’m beginning to wonder…do you really have problems, or are you just making them up?
If there was a poll held to identify the user with the most number of posted problems, you’d probably win hands down
No man can be that unfortunate [/B]
no mate you see the holes in the cable where due to the fact i putted the connector out a my hdd one day and the hole end came off lol all i could see was pin holes in the cable and the end was still stuck in my hdd lol
so now i got a new cable 40 pin for it but im thinking i should be getting a bit more speed so i was willing to try out the 80 pin cables im still looking
im useing that cable now with my burner lol im thinking meby i get noise now ? becuse of the holes in the cable
should i use my 40 pin or stick to the 80 pin ?
i need a test program that can detect transfer noises in cables lol
And mate i realy do have thse problems lol there all i bit silly i gotta admit but there all true
eny way what do ya suggest ? 40 pin or 80 pin ? and how much difrence will a 80 pin be over a 40 pin
