I bought this:

Samsung CD Drive

And there are no cables that came with anything that I bought. I have no idea what type of cable I need and why it wasn't included....

Any ideas?

Thanks!

It's because you bought an OEM unit. OEM is just the drive and nothing else. Your board doesn't support IDE, you need SATA. And the drive recommended above is deactivated. Return your drive to new egg and buy this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
your motherboard should have come with Sata cables as well that look like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Not the exact same color but the ends will be the same.
your power supply should have a black connector that looks like the black one in this picture: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ImageGallery.aspx?CurImag...
