ThinkCentre M800, cannot find data cable for 2.5" HDD

OK, I bought an M800 with the 2.5" HDD caddy. I went to add the 2.5" HDD and I can only find the SATA power but there is no data cable. Am I supposed to go out and buy the internal SATA cable? It isn't included when you buy the 2.5" HDD caddy? Seems a little strange that they include the SATA power plug but not the data cable.


I did look around inside the M800 and there is definitely an open SATA port on the motherboard. I just could not find a spare internal SATA cable.

Yes, you buy the SATA3 cable, at the correct length and whether the cable goes straight in, or has a 90-degree turn at the connector.   Newegg is a good source.
