    lol i just wasted tonight away doing this!!!

    i have no 36" cables, i have 18" and 24". NONE REACH. i even chopped up a 24"
    (the casing) but no luck!!

    I have my ide drive working, however its just laying on top the super drive and im not cool with that, id rather have it in the cage. So i guess im either gonna hafta A. buy a cable or B. make something!
