There is nothing to worry about!! Your SATA DVD drive doesn't require an analog or SPDIF connector on the back of the drive. The CD's/DVDs sound runs through your on-board sound (or dedicated sound card) without needing this connection. The data is transported to your sound card through the SATA cable and comes out through your speakers or headset. This is how the newer drives are designed, so you didn't get shortchanged .
