Have bought some new cables for my case which are round IDE and are neon same as SATA cable. Can i turn off the computer and disconnect these cables and fit the new ones and start it up again, or will i have to do something else? Hope someone can help. Many thanks Neil
Be very careful what you brush up against when you stick your hands in the case though. Don't want to fry anything with static, especially the HDDs themselves; damage an HDD and it takes a while to show up in the form of premature failure. An anti-static strap is a good idea.
