There's 2 kinds of IDE cables, 40-wire (and 40 pins) and 80-wire (and still only 40 pins). The 80-wire cables have 'spacers' between each wire to reduce interference at higher speeds, and that's why 80-wire cables are required for ATA-66 and above. The 80-wire cables are thinner than the 40-wire cables (they have to be to be able to fit twice as many wires in the same space).
