Soundblaster livedrive cable

Recommended Posts

Guest PostalBoy

Ok, so the greatest and latest thing from creative, the SoundDrive, or LiveDrive... This nifty device uses an old IDE cable to connect to the sound card. The cable is keyed by two missing pins (the 6th pins in). IDE cables now are usually keyed with a single blocked pin in the center.

 

I have not yet seen a round IDE cable. If someone could confirm for me that the round IDE cables do infact have a keyed (blocked) pin that would be great. I'm really dont want to make a round cable from the ribbon that I have.

as far as I know they are exactly the same...

I got bored the other night and I made a rounded

IDE cable w/ a razor blade... went every 5 wires...

didn't take long and it looks like it works

perfectly... if you have a spare IDE cable I'd just do it

for the #### of it, took me about an hour maybe cause I was eating ice cream and talkin online and stuff at the same time...

I think I did a crappy job on the tape cause we didnt have electrical tape, so I used this stuff for pipes... Ima take

it out and do a good job so it looks better and might get a

little better airflow cause its all bulky and doesnt bend that

good...
