Keeping it tidy -trimming an ISA CABLE?

  jack 10:15 19 Oct 2005

Iam shortly going to fit a second optical drive in to a Tower PC, which is already a cable nightmare.
Can I shorten the ISA flat by trimming off the 'top end' thus making the centre connection the 'top' and only device connection?

I wouldn't - there is a danger of the bare ends shorting to each other or earth

I would not cut the IDE cables for the reasons seedie has given.
