2 questions1. Why do big chain computer manufacurers glue the IDE cable into the sockets?2. What is the best way to remove the glue while the HDD is still in the computer?ThanksStickyman
1. It stops the plugs coming loose in transit.2. It just peels off.
If you mean the silicon like glue some manufacturers use then as Tog says you should be able to peel it off. If you get stuck you can cut them free with a new sharp knife blade, but be very careful you only cut the glue and make sure the powers off.
In addition to the above, it also might show that you have been fiddling about inside your machine so they (the suppliers) can then object if you make any claims under the warranty.I know you should be able to do things inside your computer case - that was the original IBM notion when they developed the Personal Computer - but some assemblers object to that.Brian
