all ide cables will run to their max on 40 ie: 40 wires the 80 wires version uses a sheiding to stop any interference but 40 is sufficient for cd-rom or cdrw dvd-rom all opical drives are well within the data transfer range of a 40 wire ata 33 cable.
the 80 wire cables should be used for data transfer of ata 66 ata 100&133 which are ide hard drives.
