The first one kinda looks like S-video to composite 

 

Or after what @ yaboistar said probably component, not composite

Last pic you posted, is a combo USB and Firewire device, with two cables (one for each) to socket into a compatible mobo.

Prior pic are a pair of IDE (aka PATA) cables for old hard drives.

Then a molex to 6 pin adapter for video card power

 


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

After what @hiitswilliam said, is a molex to SATA converter cable.

 

For the record all of these are very old and unlikely to be used.

I'd still name them "Bob", and perhaps a "Betty" or two

The first 2 pics i dont know what is, but i (somewhat) know the rest:

3rd pic: This is a molex to 6-pin PCIe power connector.

4th: IDE cables for old hard drives.

5th: Looks like more IDE cables, but hard to see when the picture is taken from the side.

6th: This one is a little complicated.... It looks like the bottom half of the braket is USB. That just plugs into a normal USB 2.0 header on your motherboard. The other one i dont know.

looks like a couple of S-Video to RCA Composite adapters in there too. difficult to tell but one could also be a P/S1 to P/S2 connector. DIN connectors all look the damn same.

 

top one looks like S-Video to Component

 

 

bottom one is mini firewire and usb expansion, designed to go in a pcie slot and then plug into spare motherboard headers. i use one of these on a legacy machine.

1) Looks like some kind of Component/S-video adapter cable.
2) Molex to Sata power
3) S-video to Composite Video only. (These were popular, once upon a time... with old camcorders. Sometimes they came with a new GPU... Goes in the trash today)
4) Same as above, but smaller.
5) Molex to 6 pin.(never use this, if your PSU doesn't support the extra 6pins you need for a GPU, it's not a good idea to convert a single molex to 6pin)
6) Left is IDE cable for Harddrives(has more parallel lines). Right is IDE cable for disc drives.
7) Firewire + USB port add on for the back of a PC.

 

 

Is what I'm guessing this all is.

All of these are ancient and won't be seeing any use case in the future, feel free to trash 'em all.

OK, the first one is S-Video to Component (video and audio/RCA), the second one is a molex to sata power adapter and the last  also looks like an s-video to component (RCA video only)

 

As for the rest

4: S-video to component adapter (RCA)

5: Molex to PCIe for a gpu

6: IDE lead (old style HDD)

7 USB & mini Fire wire, would slot into one of the spaces on the back of the case.

amusingly i also have all of these in my old stuff drawer... Except the floppy drive ide cable. I have a floppy drive and an LS120 drive, but i dont have the ide cables for it, nor any idea how or if one connects ide devices to modern mobos.

I've still got 2 VHS players and a DVD player in a box complete with scart leads, rca leads and digital coaxial leads... I actually kinda miss my old PC with a soundblaster card that had digital coaxial outputs rather than spdif (opitcal) as the coaxial leads were so thick and chunky, would stand up to any punishment, whilst spdif ones seem so flimsy and breakable.

As said, most of these are trash. Unless you are interested about using old VHS, camvoders, CRT TVs etc. IDE and floppy cables I have one of each saved. Just for nostalgic value. I went for SATA only back in 2008 when building my first full rig. That was few years before IDE faced out.

Yeah basically all junk I guess.. I used to end up with boxes and boxes of cables as I was always thinking "one day you never know I might need one" that day never came hahaha
