Rounding ATA 66/100/133 cables is like one of the WORST things you can do!
The cables are in a ribbon for a reason...
There is a grounding wire in between every transmission wire in them to prevent crosstalk. And if you round them by slicing them up, you'll have a higher chance for crosstalk, which will lead to data loss...
