Help adding 2nd DVD Drive to Vostro 270 Desktop

I mounted the 2nd drive and find a power cable inside but I don't see a data cable. Is there a certain type I need and which port on the motherboard do I plug it to? There are two available. I assume one is for 2nd HDD and one is for 2nd DVD drive.

Thanks.

You need a SATA data cable, similar to the cable shown here,

This can be connected to any open SATA connector on the motherboard.
