I recently bought an internal DVD drive on eBay. I spoke to someone from LG but they say it's not an Australian model so they don't know anything about it. The drive didn't come with cables or a manual, so I need help please.
About the DVD drive:
It is a 'Super Multi DVD Writer GH24NSD1'
It has two holes to put cables in. One is long and narrow and is labelled 'sata power connector'. The other is short and narrow and is labelled 'sata signal connector'
Manufactured June 2016 (so it is not an old model)
ROM VER: LG00
SVC Code: NSD1
Also it has HF20C above the holes for the cables
What I need to know:
1. What sata cables do I need to use this with my laptop?
2. Should the DVD drive still work in Australia, with Australian DVDs, even though it is a different country's model? (I don't know which country, and nor does the LG rep)
