First...are you sure the drive has died? What are the problems you're having?
Newegg has a number of good IDE combo drives you might be interested in. I've had good luck with both the Pioneer drives and the Asus drives, but ther are quite a few to choose from. The "Retail" drives come with cables and software...the OEM drives provide the drive only.

Just wanted to add to what Wannabe1 suggested. Tigerdirect also has a good assortment of combo drives HERE
As Wnnabe1 says the difference is Retail or OEM

Thanks for the link. Is it necessary to replace the cable?
I did find the Sony drive I was initially looking at and it is SATA.
Thanks for the help!

All the drives at the newegg link I gave you are IDE (PATA) drives.
