Need some advice...
Alright I hope this is in the right forum. If it isn't please move it to the appropriate one.
I've got decent knowledge about computers but I still consider myself to be a noob in many regards. Anyways I just recently purchased a Samsung external DVD burner (Model #SH-S223). It requires a SATA connection and the cord was not included with the burner I purchased which I did not know. Anyways to the point I've never worked with or used a SATA connection so I need advice on what cord to purchase so I can fire this thing up. I'd like for it to be a SATA to USB 2.0 type cord. To be honest I'm not even sure what the size of the SATA input is. Which I believe would either be 2.5", 3.5", or 5.25". From the looks of it to the naked eye I'd say it's likely 2.5" input but if anyone could confirm this it'd be very helpful.
If someone can point me in the right direction and possibly provide some link(s) to a relatively inexpensive option it'd be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
