    Exclamation Attn: 15' foot 80 wire IDE works. Paid 16 buks. -DVD-ROM (Say Yes!)

    OK,

    I know I know I know.
    Waste of money blah blah blah...It won't work. Use firewire.
    Since then, I have bought firewire card 3 external ports 1 internal $30 buks, 15 foot 6 pin to 6 pin $18.99.
    Just won the intio bid for that ide to firewire adapter card! $31 plus shipping.

    OK so? I just got a call yesterday from the guy that works by my in the city, the cable is ready. It's a 80 wire 15 foot IDE.
    $16 buks he says, I'm like cool thanks.

    Tested it DVD just watched fast and furious on it and my CD is playing in my moded slot load now. So professionally made 15 foot cable works for 15 buks. WOW cheap, pics of this will be digitally posted as soon as my friend gets over here to witness it!

    Anything is possible if you put your mind to it!

    Later.

    The guy said that the company did'nt have shrkink wrap that long. But he said if Im puttin it in my car just use some black electrical tape and fold it over and tape it.

    I don't think it has anything to do with luck.

    Well it may not be luck, but considering not many people have had success with this method, I assume it to be.

    The company's name I'm not sure of, but is somewhere by the Twin Towers theirs a place called Custom Cables Unlimited or something.

    If I knew it was gonna work (which I did ) I would have ordered like 10 of them. And sold them for 20 buks each shipped. Hmm, that give's me a idea.

    I'll get more company info later. I was interning over the summer. My sister
    brought the cable home yesterday from out company.
    Also is it possible that it works in my room and not in my car due to more interference? Well anywayz running both 15' IDE and 15' firewire cable to make sure. eheh double protection. I mean redundancy.
