06-18-03, 04:59 PM #1
ok so im putting together my 1st system, and im lookin for a cheap hd. my 1st question is this: is it possible to change from 60 or 80 pin IDE (HD) -> 40 pin IDE (mobo)?

60pin? eh? 60pin connectors are SCSI II or something..
now there is 40 wire and 80 wire which is the cable difference between support fo ATA33 and ATA66/100/133 for drives.

80 strand cables are really just 40 pin. The extra 40 wires are there to inhibit electro-magnetic interference.
