Hey, i am making a case for my xbox and i need a 4 device IDE cable for the modded samsung and 3 hd's..... So it neds to look like this I======I=I=I=I
Does anyone know where to get one? I've looked around some local stores with no luck. I know it's possible to make them but i dont have a lot of time and i know i will mess up if i do it without a crimper. So if someone would like to make me one i'll pay for the costs of material, plus some extra of course.
thanks a lot

You can go to actionelectronics
, They have all the equipment that you need to make yourself a 4 port ide cable.

thanks but that site was kinda confusing. The reason i'm asking for a place to buy or or to buy one off someone is because i dont have the skill to make one myself or the money to buy the proper equipment to make it right.

you dont need a crimper really. just go to an electronics store, buy a few feet of ide cable and some clip-on connectors... or, although everyone seems to be against me despite my video (which proves there is NO LAG), buy a trios refurb. for $39 and just use that... much easier

haha well i was reading your post and was thinking "lag" the whole time. The thing is i like making stuff myself if i know hot to do it. The idea of a 4 pole 3 position switch is reall neat to me. And i'f i'm going to have a clear case the wiring will just look cool. I'm in Indiana USA by the way. hmmm that's pretty far.
i'll check around my local electronic store, but i did once before for a shirt time and didn't find what i was looking for.

i made the 4 pole, 3 position switch (looks like an octopus), as well as the 4 device cable (did ferrel's mod). just be careful when switching b/w devices not to crap out one of your hds. this happended to me, killed a 120gb hd. anyway, good luck.

i already have a 4 pole 3 pos switch. I was thinking about making one but i think i would have messed it up and i would look like shit. Really the only think i need is the cable. How did you mess up the HD? Did you switch the power when it was on or what?
