    I never had a problem with making my own....split them, wrap em with electrical tape, and get a length of wire loom from your local auto parts store....works great, looks better. my 2 cents

    Actually, I have a neat little way to do rounded IDE cables w/o cutting them or using electrical tape. All you need is some split loom tubing (can be had at car stores) and <strike>some</strike> a lot of pull ties. Do a W fold on the IDE lengths (do one section at a time) and then slip the tubing over the cable. Now start at one end of the section and work in one direction from their using the pull ties every so often. For the shorter length on the IDE part 2-3 is usually good enough; for the longer section, 5-6 is what you wanna use.
