    My computer has not been able to boot up as of lately and somehow i traced the problem to a damaged data cable that runs from my motherboard to an I/O panel thats on the side of the drives and im having a hard time finding a place that sells them or the panel/cable together in the image the cable highlighted is the cable im talking about its 34 pin (33 used) and is grey THANKS FOR ANY HELP! BTW this data cable goes from the Front Panel Connector slot on mobo to the I/O panel where a few other cables connect to i just need help on finding a place to purchase this! :)

    Could you use something like a dremel and make an IDE cable into one of these as a temporary solution until you find a cable?

    can you snap apart the current cables connectors and use a ribbon cable from an old IDE cable to snap them onto?

    Sorry I don't know where to purchase that cable.
