How am I suppose to connect my opticaldrive to my motherboard and hdd w/o sata ports?(I have the sata cable but it doesnt fit anywhere except the big host interface. My optical drive only has: host interface and power ports, and two other small things that I don't know, because its not labeled. Right now it can only eject because i connected it to my psu.

You have an older IDE optical drive, if your motherboard does not have an IDE header with a 40 pin ribbon cable your drive isnt going to work, go to best buy and pick up a cheap SATA one.
