Rounded SCSI Cables for SCSI2SD?

Recommended Posts

Just as the topic asks, has anyone tried using a rounded scsi cable for their SCSI2SD or even just normal internal scsi hdd? I don't love the idea of twisting the flat cable to orientate it correctly in my SE/30. I remember in the past buying roudned IDE cables but I'm having trouble finding SCSI. Any thought or advice?

What does a “rounded” SCSI cable mean?  Are all the lines bundled together into a round packet of wires instead of a ribbon?  What’s the concern with twisting the flat ribbon, provided it’s long enough?

I'd say you'll need to DIY (in the noughties I used to do this all the time to 40 pin IDE cables, using a razor and zip ties), but be aware of SCSI being more sensitive to signalling issues so if there are any SCSI quirks, it's that cable.
