Im replacing a PATA DVD drive with a SATA one, I need the wires for the power and the data (sorry if im being blonde) Can anyone point me to them on Ebuyer?

If your PSU has Sata leads then you only need a Sata data cable

But if your PSU only has 4pin molex connectors then you can use this for power and data

Depending on your motherboard you may require one of these:

Check whether your drive will work with them as they only provide two of the three power connections a normal SATA power connector has and some drives need all three. (I think it's a 3.3v line that's missing)
