from newegg, a lite on
iHDS118-04

it was oem and i forgot that means no cables =P so i need to snag a sata cable/power cable. Thing is my systems pretty old, like 4 years or more i think. it might have been an earlier generation sata, will newer sata II cables work fine with it still? what kind does that dvd rom use? i was just going to get this from monoprice:

would that work fine? not sure if sata II is compatible with sata I or what the deal is. a hardrive sata cable and a dvd rom sata cable are the same thing right?

There's no difference between SATA 1.5Gb/s and 3.0Gb/s cable (note SATA I & II does not exist).
So any SATA cable will work with iHDS118.
