    What cables do I need to buy for my floppy drive and my dvd-rom drive? I bought them online and they did not come with the cables. The floppy drive looks to have two places for cables. The DVD looks to have 4 places for cables. ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You'll need an IDE cable for the DVD drive and a floppy drive cable for the floppy drive.

    On the DVD drive there is place(2?) to connect an audio cable and run it to your sound card but that is optional.

    Floppies have two inputs - one for power which you should have from your power supply, and another one that looks like an IDE cable but is narrower (plus if it's got three connectors instead of two, the middle wires are reversed in the ribbon cable). The DVDROM drive will have an IDE cable (same as your HD), a power cable (again, same as your HD), an Analog output that goes to your sound card and finally the fourth - well I'm not sure about the forth actually since I don't own one - anyone?

    I believe it is digital audio output
