    Hi, I have an internal harddrive and DVD player/burner from a PC desktop computer. I'd like to use the harddrive for backup storage and the DVD player to play movies occasionally.

    I have limited computer tinkering experience, but I read that a SATA to USB cable will allow my MBA to communicate with the harddrive and DVD player. I'm wondering if it will be as simple as downloading a driver and then connecting the hardware to use it? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!

    You probably wont even have to download a driver.
