Falcon IDE Ribbon Cable 40/80?

Postby KLund1 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 5:07 am

Which ribbon cable is best, the 40 or 80(ultra) wire version? or dose it make no difference?
Updating a Falcon to CF and SD, just want to check?

If you are connecting the internal IDE on the Falcon mobo, there is no difference between the 40-wire or 80-wire cable, just make sure your adapter is aligned correctly. If I am not mistaken, the rows may be swapped.
I would just be safe and use a normal 44-wire cable instead.

So sorry , do you mean the IDE on the CTPCI ?
I used a 40 wire cable for that. It does not matter really as it does not do UDMA mode anyway.
