    Aloha,
    Does anyone know the difference between a 40 pin 40 conductor cable and a 40 pin 80 conductor cable? The 40 pin connectors (actually 39) on the 40 conductor and 80 conductor looks the same so how is it wired??? I physically counted the wires on the 40 conductor wire so it makes sense connected to a 40 pin connector. Now the question is, how is the 80 conductor connected to the 40 pin connector?? TIA

    Mahalo,

    Howdy doogdoog...

    In the 80 connector every other wire is connected to ground...

    Some good reading on the 80 wire UDMA cables...

    Aloha JediMaster,
    Thanks for the answer and that makes sense and it reminds me of the telephone jumper wires that has so many twists in a foot to prevent x talk. TIA

    Aloha JediMaster,
    Yes, I don't think that I have ever come across another word that has as much or more meanings than Aloha. It speaks for itself.

    Aloha JediMaster,
    When I was in the Army back in 65' I had a buddy from Kentucky. His name was Clifford Carroll (last name sp?) and we were in the same unit. What are you drinking? Moonshine? LOL Well, now it time for a couple of beers. TIA

    Well..

    Don't know any Carroll's ( name is probably spelled right ) from my neck of the woods, but as far as Moonshine goes, I wish it was, just budwiser for me for now...

    Take care my friend...
