    reversals in ide cable select cable

    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=7][COLOR=Black]
    Hi, I need a refresher on which pins of the 40 pin cable are reversed for 'cable select'. From memory it seems that pins 10 thru 16 are reversed, but it has been some 9 years since I closed my computer store and I have not made up such a cable since then. Could someone please advise which leads are reversed for cable select ? Thanks, gene

    not sure what you mean but if you mean what side it goes in...the red line always goes nearest to the power connector.

    I believe he's looking for the pinout diagram so he can make his own cable. Unfortunately I have not seen one.
