  • IDE adapter and cable orientation

    alright so the title pretty much sums it up. I'm putting together my system but I've noticed that the IDE cable can connect two ways to the IDE adapter on the slim dvd/cd rom. does the tab that would normally allow it to only go one way fit up or down? Thanks guys.

    Can you locate pin 1 on the adapter? If so, the edge fo the cable with the colored stripe (usually red) goes on that end.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      99% of the time Pin 1 is facing the power connector

        as DarquePervert said, find pin 1 and match it up with the coloured stripe on the cable.
