    Hi, I have a problem, I just bought this.

    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CD-158-SA&groupid=701&catid=10

    But not sure what cable is needed for the port on the left, the right L-shaped port is SATA, but what do I need for the left, im assuming it's for power? But I don't know where i can get one, or what it's called.... I thought I only needed the SATA, but it won't boot or find it. Its slightly smaller than the SATA connections...
