Question About Make Round Ide Cable


Recommended Posts

Hi all I am wondering is it ok to make ATA type IDE round cable by ourselve? because the lines are much more dense compare to normal IDE cable.

 

Also is there a way to check if we did cut any of the line in the process? I mean will the whole thing not work even if only 1 of the line is cutted or does it have to be multiple? Thanks all

Welcome to OCC uirikun2. :)

 

Yes, it's ok to slice up a standard IDE cable and make it into a round one. However, you won't be able to tell if it works until you plug it in-it will probably only take one bad wire to screw the whole thing up.

I've made one before. I accidentally scraped it to where one wire was exposed, but it didn't affect the cable. So, I guess if you screw up, as long at the wires aren't touching, they should be okay.
