Windows 7: sata cable

sata cable

I have a hp pavilion DV7 (4180eb).
It has a SATA 3 slot for 1 HDD but it's no regular sata cable and power cable: it's integrated in one cable.

Has each laptop a specific sata cable?

Most laptops don't use a SATA cable at all. They just have a SATA connector that the drive snaps into. They're usually an all in one connector, not separate power/data cables.

If your laptop uses a cable, then absolutely yes: it is specific to that laptop.

I bought a sata3 ssd instead of a sata ssd- didn't read the package correctly. I've already cloned the sata3 drive. Is there a cable/adapter available that I can adapt the sata wiring to the sata3 drive? It's going into a Dell 545 desktop. Thanks. Mark

Sata/IDE to USB cable
I bought one of these today off eBay but then noticed the description says not comparable with vista and windows 7. But surely windows 7 should just find it on its own? Please let me know ASAP as I'm worrying I bought wrong one. Thanks kent.
