I have a Mac Pro (2x2.66 GHZ Dual-Core Intel Xeon) and I would like to fit a Blu-Ray drive (Pioneer BDR-203) into it. I would like to fit it into the "hidden" Sata sockets under the the fans on the motherboard.

Can anyone tell me what type of cable I need? I am new to SATA and have no idea which is an A fitting and which is B, whether I need a 90 degree one etc. It would appear lots of people have done, this I just need to know exactly which cable to use. I am based in the UK and was going to order from cpc (Your Search Results | CPC. If anyone could point out exactly which cable I need, it would be much appreaciated.

QUOTE Thanks
