    i messed up my original 40 conductor ide cable by pinching it between the case and the hard drive when i closed the xbox. does any one know if it would be ok to use a 80 conductor ide cable in place of the original 40 conductor ide cable??
    THANX

    it should work fine the 80 pin conductor does the same thing that a 40 pin does but at a much faster rate.since the xbox does not support this faster rate it just clocks back.

    just for any one else reading, u can use an 80 conductor cable as long as it is long enough and some cables have one of the conductors removed, the only diference between a 40 wire and a 80 wire is that the 80 wire has an extra wire in between the each of the signal conductors so as to reduce interference between conductors so that they run at a faster ata133 speed which doesn't matter on xbox
