Missing piece on Hard Drive Sata port


Hey, everbody --
I just bought this Hard Drive from a guy on Craigslist, and I went to hook it up to my desktop and noticed something kind of strange. There are some plastic pieces missing from the SATA connectors, preventing me from attaching any cables to them. The HDD can be found here and I've provided a picture of the connectors. If you Google "sata hard drive" you'll notice the different between my hard drive and a normal one. Is there anyway I can replace those pieces or connect this HDD to my motherboard with a unique SATA cable? Thanks :)
