Default Hard Drive Problem

Hi well i decided it was time to add an extra hard drive to my computer so i went out and bought a Western Digital Serial ATA HDD 200GB.

The problem is that inside my computer there is no plug to plug into the 'serial data' socket. There are spare Sata Power, and Legacy Power cables, but no 'serial data' The only one it has is being used up by my current Hard Drive. However i tracked this cable back to the motherboard and there does seem to be a spare socket for another one of these cables next to the current one.

Where would i buy one of these cables? If anyone could give me a link that would be great.

Thanks, any help is greatly appriciated.

Unless you bought the drive OEM, it should include a cable.
