  • Which model of Pi? What sort of IDE cable did you use? – joan Oct 5 '14 at 17:00
  • B+ 1.2 and 40 pin ide hard drive cable – jlx78520 Oct 5 '14 at 17:23

    Modern IDE cables have 80 wires (still 40 pins). Do the individual wires look very slim? Unfortunately if it was an 80 wire cable the Pi may be dead. It's not just a straight through cable, some pins are interconnected. The gpios may have been shorted and that could have killed the Pi. – joan Oct 5 '14 at 17:28
  • Yes it's 80 wire ide, I think it's dead and not reperable :'( – jlx78520 Oct 5 '14 at 17:31
