ID:	10441 You can see the original cable and how this was folded. Question is, is it Ok to fold it, how hard should the press be? Can I damage the cable is not folded properly. Any help is much appreciated. Mark

    Yes go ahead. It's when you fold, unfold, fold the other way etc it breaks. Like bending a paperclip back and forth.
    Fold once, it will be ok, don't squash it flat when you fold, be gentle...

    the cables like that Ive bought in the past all came pre-folded . They were for Win notebooks though, not Macs
    Is the cable a non-genuine part ? If you search that part number, do the genuine parts show as pre-folded

    You really have any choice now anyway , unless you want to wait & buy again from somewhere else
