    This cable is suitable for connecting either one or two IDE hard disks to a desktop computer, using the primary or secondary IDE socket on the motherboard.

    The cable is compatible with any current or ancient IDE speed (66MHz, 100MHz or 133MHz) and works without any problem with my Intel 815 Chipset, on a 1999 motherboard which supports 66/100/133MHz on the front side bus (FSB).

    You're typically going to buy this cable to replace an old one that's faulty, or to replace one that only has a single connector (so can only connect one hard disk) with this one which can connect two.

    Although it's is an 80-wire cable, 40 of those wires are earth wires (i.e. they're grounding, or shielding, the 40 wires that carry data, in order to improve the reliability of the connection, in the face of electrical interference from other signals inside the computer). So what you'll actually see is a 40-pin connector, not an 80-pin one.

    Take proper anti-static precautions before opening the case on your computer. Static electrical charges on your clothes and hands can fry the delicate electronics inside the case - beyond repair!

    The cable connects to the Primary IDE connector: the 40-pin blue connector on the cable plugs into the motherboard's primary IDE socket (which is also blue).

    Note: Your CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM, will be plugged into the board's other (secondary) IDE connector, using a similar ribbon cable. Don't unplug that device! (If you do, it's too easy to become confused as to which ribbon cable attaches to which socket on the board).

    The black connector on the cable (the one at the end of the cable) plugs into the 40-pin connector on your hard disk. If you're only attaching one disk to this cable it MUST be attached to the black connector.

    Never wanting to through any working HDD away, I fitted a couple of old drives internally as back up devices via an ATA/IDE adaptor card (only SATA on mobo). These cables did the job and I now have 2 more operational HDD, for now anyway.

    i bought this to fit a second hdd to my old desktop computer. i connected it up and it worked fine however it came with no instruction at all. Not a problem for me but a person with less experience may have had problems.

    I bought this cable to replace the faulty one in my PC as it wasn't connecting to my disk drives. Very easy to connect; just plug in and play. It arrived before it's estimated time and in good condition. Good price for a specialist product

    This is great if you have an older motherboard with IDE connections - you can use it to slave a drive off of another - does what it says! I used it to slave a second hard drive off of an optical drive onto the Mboard. Works a treat even using LINUX like me.
