I was wondering if there are any IDE cables with two Female and a Male (like the motherboard's end) connector. I'm making a plexi case, and was hoping I could mount the male end on the back so I could plug my DVD drive into the xbox when I need it, with a regular short IDE cable with two female ends.

I know they make the connectors. I have seen them on IDE extension cables.

I tried a different search engine and came up with this: http://www.stonewall...

it let's you choose a custom length, so I could just order like a 1 inch one, only problem is that I don't want to pay $34 for a one inch cable.

How hard is it to crimp an IDE cable on to one of these http://www.pccables.com/01810.htm

If it's easy, that will be a lot cheaper. I've never made any cables, but I know theres a crimper somewhere in the house.
