Default IDE to S-ATA power adapter

Hello guys, so my brother's cd/dvd drive stopped working, and I want to install a dvd burner that I currently don't use.His old cd drive was connected to 4pin IDE, and this drive needs 15pin Sata.
However, his computer's power supply only has 1 SATA cable, which is already used by the hard drive.


So, I was wondering if this adapter would work ?
If so, do you know where I can get a shorter one?

yea thats the kind of adapter you need, but its pretty expensive there for just an adapter. you could get it here instead.
