So, I modded my Original Xbox and I need a 80 pin IDE cable that is long enough to reach the CD drive and Harddrive. Where can I find long enough cables? I know it seems obvious, but all the cables I see are too short for the Xbox.

By a cheap ATX motherboard, take the cable you need, and then return said motherboard? Tell the people that it didn't have as many USB ports as you'd liked it to have. They won't think a thing of it and give your money back.

Try one of these

http://www.ebay.com/itm/18-80-Wire-...hash=item1a05578c1b:m:mko2JEWRNXJxM4OGRHYVmkg

or

and of course this because those old IDE drives ain't cheap no more.
