So you are saying that your motherboard has both SATA and IDE connections available?
If so, then hooking up the SATA DVD Burners to the SATA ports should work fine.

If your motherboard has SATA connections then connect a SATA data cable to the motherboard. In addition connect a SATA power cable to your power supply. The two connections are all it takes. It is easy to do. :D
