This is an example of a SATA data cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

Note the L-shape inside the cable's connector.

It also shows a SATA connector for the motherboard.
Note the L-shape on the connector. The optical drive (CD/DVD drive) also has this L-shape on it's connector.

(SATA connectors on the motherboard come in various colors. Color signifies what SATA connector it may be. SATA0, or SATA1, or SATA2, etc.)

Between a SATA data cable's connector, and a SATA power cable's connector, the SATA power cable connector is the larger of the two.

SATA data cable connector has 7-pins. (Contact pins)
SATA power cable has 15-pins. (Contact pins)

Example of a SATA power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

A SATA data cable connector, and a SATA power cable connector, may have a small 'bump' on them, that you depress with your thumb, when installing the cable, or removing. The 'bump' is a Lock.

Usually the cable end going to a harddrive, or an optical drive; will be a 90 degree Elbow.
The straight end connector plugs into the motherboard.

A Top View look at the motherboard in your computer,

HP Support main page > Product information > Product specifications > Motherboard specifications, MCP61PM-HM (Nettle2),

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01077676&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=3436817

View shown has NO hardware on the motherboard.
(Processor, Ram Memory, etc)

The long Blue, and Black slots, with the White Lock 'ears', are Ram Memory slots.

The SATA connectors on the motherboard, are to the bottom/right corner, of the Number 3 and Number 4 ram memory slots. (Blue)

Yellow, Blue, White, and Black.

Scroll down, and click on the + sign to the left of the blue -
Motherboard layout

Using this illustration you can see;

Yellow SATA connector is SATA4 <-
Blue SATA connector is SATA3
White SATA connector is SATA2
Black SATA connector is SATA1

Due to standards set by JEDEC, and generally followed by all; the harddrive is plugged into SATA1.

HOWEVER, you can plug your optical drive, or drives, or harddrive, or harddrives; into ANY SATA connector on the motherboard that you want to.

The beauty of SATA is that BIOS will find the drive, NO matter what SATA connector on the motherboard you plug into.
Harddrive, or optical drive.

For clarification on anything I have stated above, or for additional questions; please post in a Comment.

I have a lg DVD-RAM Model no GH22NP20 its not run data cds & DVD-RAM.


need to check firmware version then update it

Here's how to get LG's Auto Firmware Updater
Go here :
http://www.lge.com/support/software.jsp
Select
> Location = North America > USA/ Canada
Then
> Product = DVD-ROM (writer)
> Operating System = Vista
> Subject = LG Auto Firmware Download


Download the .zip file to your Desktop
You'll need to "Extract All" from the .zip
and then run the setup file
You'll need to allow Internet Access ( AV/IS )
The Updater will probably need to Update itself - before being active


To Manually Search For Firmware Updates
> Product = DVD-ROM (writer)
> Operating System = Vista
> Subject = Firmware

Look through the Listings for your Specific Drive
I would recommend Disabling the LG Auto Firmware Updater
- from Windows Start-up
You can open the Updater at any time - from All Programs
