I just finished installing my matrix mod and started celebrating a little to early. When i was reassembling my xbox I punched a hole straight through the ribbon cable. I tried a cable i had lying around but the thing just cuts on and off when i use that. I wasnt able to test the matrix beforehand so that might be a problem with the install. At any rate, does anyone know what i should do? Im going to keep trying different cables till i find one.

Make sure you're using a cable that doesn't have a little cut in it. There are some Ultra IDE cables that have a small cut in them and those don't work correctly.
