Am familiar with IDE devices but not SATA.
Bought a Samsung DVD Writer for my son's PC (as a Christmas present) from Newegg but it came w/o a box or any cables/instructions. Went to Samsung's website but the install instructions are minimal. Want to include any cables necessary (what good is a preseny if you can't use iy - or have to buy things before installing?).
His PC is a DELL Dimension 8300.
