Default Plz Help Name Comp Cable

Hey Everyone, 1st Time Posting And Was Hoping To Get Some Help. I Went Through Almost All The Post (At Least 2Hrs Of Searching ^_^) And I Couldnt Find Anything So I'm Hoping I'm Not Repeating A Post.

I Just Finished Putting My New Desktop Together And To My Bad Luck The Cable Needed To Connect My Dvd Drives To The MB Is To Short. I Went Online To Try To Figure Out What I Needed To Get But I'm Not Sure One The Name Of The Cable Anymore.

I Think I Need A IDE Cable I Got The Wierd Feeling That It The Cable For ATA HDD And Not My DVD Drives. Can Someone Help Me Out Plz.

I have a few ideas (just from browsing motherboards and opt. drives), but if you could give a link to the DVD drive's page, that'd be very much appreciated. You'll either need an IDE or an SATA cable, I think.

Also, please don't capitalize every word, it's hard to read.

Both of those cables are fine to connect to your dvd drives.
