I need to buy an IDE 80-wire cable for my DVD burner and after browsing through various sites, I am a bit lost.
- Flat or round?
- 18". 24" or even 36" are offered. Is it imperative to stick to the 18"max[/quote]18" flat ribbon cables are standard compliant.
Most rounded ones are not, neither are 24" or 36". A cable, which is not standard compliant, might work, but it can also cause trouble.
