    Areca ARC 1880ixl-8 - which Sata cable do I need?
    It says sff 8087 to 4x Sata but I have two of these cables and neither seem to work... Does anyone have any idea why? I have one cable which works and for the life of me I can't understand why they all look identical. Help please!!

    The usual candidate for this is you've bought reverse cables - wired up to connect SATA ports on the controller to a fat SAS port on the backplane.

    What you want is a forward cable - where the big plug is for controllers and the fan out for drives.
