Smile Re: Need recommendation for new DVD-RW drive

Okay, thanks! I guess I'll just need that cable and I'll be set.

One other question though - is there an adaptor that lets you plug a standard power supply plug into a SATA drive? My power supply only has 1 SATA plug, and I may want to get two of these DVD drives eventually.
