    What is this cable! And where do I get one?

    Its the cable that connects from the hardrive to the mother board but its a custom cable and I cannot find another one to save my life! For once google has failed me

    Anyone know where I can get one of these? As you can see this one got hacked to high hell when I was removing the drive by accident.

    Cable has this on it: Cableplus E96118
    MOBO is: EPIA-SP

    Nice but none of them look like my cable. They have different connectors than mine.

    These are standard cables for laptop hard drives, the one listed above is exactly the same as yours it just looks different in the picture.

    It looks the same but the connector is different. How do I find the one with my connector. What is it called?

    Not a "floppy" connector

    Floppy drives use 34 pins, IDE uses 40. Mini IDE uses 44. It is definetly not a floppy connector.

    @chowda633: coreyspeed is right, that is the cable you want - 40 to 44 pin IDE. Here is another example:

    Good Luck.

    I think the plug he is referring to being different is the white 2 pin plug on the end of the red wire.

    Here's what you can do though:
    use the 40 to 44 pin ribbon cable listed above that has the 4 pin molex then use this 4 pin mole to 3 pin header adapter
