Well there's the Plextor PX-716SA which has a SATA interface. There might be
others as well.
But to respond to the OP's query...
We'll assume you'll be purchasing the usual type of DVD recorder with the
common PATA interface. It will be basically the same connection-type as your
CD-ROM. So you'll have two connections on the recorder -- the IDE data cable
connector & the power plug connector -- the same that is on your CD-ROM.
Note the jumper pins on the device. You'll have to set the jumper depending
upon how you connect the recorder, as a Master or a Slave. Assuming you
purchase a retail boxed DVD recorder it will come with instructions re
setting it up. But if at all possible it *really* would be helpful if you
had someone at your side leading you in the connection process. Not
particularly difficult, but it helps if you have someone guiding you the
first time you're installing the device. And it certainly looks like this is
your "first time".
