Xbox Ide Cable
Posted 24 March 2004 - 05:30 AM
Xbox uses the ATA33 IDE cable for the HD & DVD, I am wondering if we change it to ATA66/ATA100 cable, would it increase the speed?
I know it depends on whether the xbox m/board supports ATA66 or above, but not sure where to find that out.
I added a 160GB HD to my xbox which is an ATA100 drive, thought i would try to get the most out of it.

Back when the ATA 66 just came out, i remember there were some test out there for older hard drives(ATA33) on a PC when using the newer cables, there was improvement. So i'm guessing it would be the same for the xbox.
I changed mine out and i think there's a little improvement, but then again....it might just be in my head.
It's a cheap upgrade, so why not. Even if it increase by .04 secs. Still something.
