    Is there such a thing as a 40 pin IDC gender changer (changing a male
    IDE connector to a female IDE connector)?
    I've been searching the web, but nothing's turned up.
    I was hoping to avoid making a cable for this.

    I think you'll be SOL ... because you need to cross over the pins. Total
    pain in the Arse.......

    get two solder tail connectors (PCB mount) of the opposite gender, and
    solder the tails together.

    Maybe it would be easier to just making my own 40 pin IDE cable.
    Is it possible to get hold of 40 pin *male* connactors that I can attach
    to a ribbon cable?
    All I can find are pre-assembled IDE cables with *female* connectors at
    each end.
