Does anyone have a blue power cord that hooks from the hardrive to the power supply I think?

????? Thats not the power cord. Is it a flat wide cable (in which case its eide) or is it a little almost d like shaped connector, in which case its a sata drive?

if this is what you're looking for, its cheaper to go to best buy, fry's or something like that.  shipping will double the price.  they're about 5 bucks plust 6 to ship.

Heya Ace,
check out the below newegg link:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007533%20600020243&IsNodeId=1&name=IDE

when dealing with older IDE cables, I would suggest going with the newer round IDE cables to help with airflow issues inside the case. those ribbon cables block alot of air movement

guncrasher is correct in about possibly going to a local PC store... even independent PC stores might have 1 or 2 they will just give you sometimes.....

but if you want the Newer Round versions, order them from some place like newegg

BEWARE: their are 2 different versions to the IDE cable, one for CD-ROM and the other for Hard Drives...... although the one for Hard Drives will work for either or, the CD-ROM type will limit you /give you problems when trying to hook to a HD sometimes

hope this helps

If anyone needs sata cables in the future, I get free ones all the time at work.  Same with anything AV related.
If I had a gun with 3 bullets and I was locked in a room with Bin Laden, Hitler, Saddam and Zipp...  I would shoot Zipp 3 times.
