Sounds like an odd problem to me. Is it possible that when the system warms up, the IDE port's solder joints loosen up and when you reinsert the cable you are using enough pressure to reconnect the loose joint(s)?
Thanks for answering.
I am not sure if there are any loose joints because the problem does not occur when I replace the cable with the new one. When I attach a new cable it works fine for a few days until the problem surfaces again. Then I begin detaching it and reattaching it until it starts working. This continues for a few days until this method also fails, it does not work even if it is removed and reinserted, and it seems the cable is damaged. And when I replace it with the new cable it starts working fine but only for a few days until the problem shows again.
