40pin 80 Wire Ide Cable

Recommended Posts

The original Xbox ide cable differs from standard ide cables in the orientation of the connectors so you wont find an 80 wire ide cable the same.  Best just to use the longest 80 wire ide cable you can find and work out the folds as you hook it up..  Note that the folds wont be the same as the original cable so dont copy that..

Just buy a 24 inch cable and fold it properly. It's not very difficult.

The proper folding thing is important, as I unfortunately discovered today.  I ended up cracking my OGXbox case today because I bunched up the ribbon cable while putting the case back on.  Luckily it's a hairline crack that can barely be detected unless you know it's there.  But it was an important lesson learned - always properly fold & tidy up your ribbon cable when reassembling.

I have in the past used rounded cables, both home made and shop bought. Its tight but you can get them in with the case closed.

I bought a few a year or so ago from a retail shop who wanted rid of this old stock that he was thinking of putting in the trash.  £1 each..... Bargain.

      Hi everyone, my IDE cable upgrade finally come after faffing about trying to get it to fit I get error 09, swapped back to stock IDE boots perfectly.  I've attached a screenshot of the cable I used and people in the reviews say it worked for them but I'm not sure there true as the IDE connectors seam the wrong way round. 
       
      Thanks all for your advice.
