Well here is my problem. I bought a DVD burner for my computer from Amazon. When the burner arrived I noticed that the DVD burner is a SATA hook up and computer is IDE. I ordered an SATA to IDE converter. I hooked up the converter and hooked up the drive but it didn't work. The contents of the converter consisted of 1 SATA converter 1 SATA cable and 1 power cable. Here is a link to the page that I ordered it from Am I missing something or am I not hooking it up right or what??? PLEASE HELP!!!!!

You need to either buy a SATA PCI controller card or an IDE DVD burner.
