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.

The vast majority of hard disks which use the IDE interface are 40 pin. This includes WD, Maxtor, IBM, Seagate.....

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

Western Digital drives are fast, as are Maxtor.
