I have messed up 2 IDE cables so far while unplugging them from my hard drives. I have broken the clips on the slave connector on one cable due to trying to unplug via pulling the ribbon cable itself and the plastic clip on the master connector on the other cable. They seem to be fit so tightly onto the hard drive that I can't help but use some force to unplug them, especially the connector in the middle of the cable. What is the "proper" way to do this? I might just get some rounded cables but I still want to know a safe method for the ribbon type cable. Thanks.
