Question Serial ATA cable question quick answer please.

I'm one short of a SATA cable and about to head to radio shack, I was wondering if I can use the SATA cable on both the HDD and the DVD burner? Becuase I have two IDE (Hard Disk connectors) but they do't fit to anthing. The Both the HDD and the DVD Burner have a SATA cable slot.

Where is a good place to buy a SATA cable at? Name a store not a online site place.

any random store: if in the usa, staples, best buy, radioshack, etc
under $10 is a good price, under $5 is regular
your going to need two separate cables for each drive

You can buy them at your local computer shop, or like you said....Radio Shack.
