I have this motherboard and I had a HDD Cable that I used before to install all my previous DVD drives, but I can't find anything to do with a cable like that on this motherboard. Can someone help me with this please? Thanks

You have a DVD drive with an IDE interface. Newer motherboards (like yours) no longer use IDE connectors, they use SATA ports instead.

You need to buy a SATA DVD drive. The cheapest one on Newegg is $16.99. Here's the link:

If you don't want to buy a new drive then you'll have to buy a "IDE to SATA" adapter.
Search on or Google/Bing for additional info.
