Answers :

Are you trying to find out for your power supply cables or your data/motherboard cables? There are a lot of different kinds of connectors, so make sure you have the right one plugged in the right way. Here are pictures of both:
\015\012Your computer may use both the older and newer style plugs and cables.
\015\012
\015\012IF YOU HAVE THIS KIND OF CONNECTOR(OLDER) FOR YOUR HARD DRIVE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT THE HARD DRIVE SHOULD BE PLUGGED IN TO YOUR PRIMARY IDE(PATA) PLUG ON THE MOTHERBOARD (IT WILL BE BLUE, RED OR A COLOR DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS). ALSO, SOMETIMES THEY HAVE A NOTCH, SO MAKE SURE THEY ARE IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. THE PATA (IDE)HARD DRIVE CONNECTOR IS THE GREEN ONE. HARD DRIVES AND DISK DRIVES ARE 40 PIN AND FLOPPY DRIVES ARE 34 PIN(THE BLACK ONE).

\015\012ide_cable2.jpg\015\012HERE'S A PICTURE OF HOW TO PLUG TWO PATA DEVICES IN AT ONCE. IF YOU HAVE ONLY ONE DEVICE LIKE THIS, JUST PLUG THE ONE END INTO THE MOTHERBOARD AND THE OTHER END INTO THE DRIVE, LEAVING THE MIDDLE ONE UNPLUGGED.

\015\012HERE'S WHAT THE NEWER SATA PLUGS AND CABLES LOOK LIKE. THE CABLE ON THE RIGHT IS FOR POWER AND THE ONE ON THE LEFT IS FOR DATA.(THIS CAN APPLY TO HARD DRIVES OR DISK DRIVES)
