    Hi All,

    I'm after an IDE cable with a 40-pin male connector on one end and a
    40-pin female connector on the other end.

    Essentially it's an IDE extension cable.

    Anyone know where I can source one, or at least the 40-pin male IDE
    connector to go on a ribbon cable ?

    Thanks

    Sonny

    Try Farnell or RS components - what you are after is available but
    it's a fairly uncommon beast

    Another option is to by a row of 2x40pin PCB mount bare headers (the
    non-boxed type).

    You can then join 2 normal IDE cables using their existing connectors...

    Do NOT do this unless you want real trouble!! The pins do not connect
    properly!!

    Try it and you will see pin 1 on one connecter will actually mate to
    pin two on the other.
