ERROR FIXEDThe connectors used for 80-way high speed ATA cables are NOT the same as the 40-pin connectors. Externally they look the same, but internally they are much more complicated, with a grounding rail along the body to earth all the extra shielding wires in the cable.APPROVED
CORRECTSome nice extra info about the connector and things around it. Keep up the good work. :)APPROVED
