Will my HD work with this cable?
I have a SEAGATE BARRACUDA 7200.10, 250GB, ULTRA ATA/100 (ST3250620A) desktop hard drive. The manual says that an 80 conductor ULTRA ATA cable should be used with it.
I do not know too much about computers and I have not read the manual until 5 minutes ago. I just bought a cable at best buy this afternoon. I had no idea that there are different kind of cables for different hard drive types. The cable I bought is an ULTRA ATA 100 ROUND CABLE (DX-C101861)
Would my hard drive work with this cable? If yes, what are the disadvantages using this cable rather than the 80 conductor ULTRA ATA cable.
