Hi guys, last night i somehow messed up the cable that connects the CD/DVD drives to motherboard. :hdbash: Does anyone know the name of the cable if it has one. Is it the same for all pc's? (correct me if not the case). Thx for the help.

i believe it is a "IDE" ribbon. It is actually written on the damn thing. And its a standard so all computers should have them.
well if he is trying to install a harddrive on the same cable then it could be the jumpers. The little grouped 6 pins to the left of the ide. There is this little thing there connecting two of the pins together. Make sure you have one setup to master and the other as a slave.
