difference between sata cd/dvd and IDE cd/dvd

I removed a cd/dvd writer from a 10 year old 17" samsung laptop to be placed into a caddy. I received the caddy, but the circuit strip did not look like it would fit into the cd/dvd unit. I sent a photo to the suppiler who said I had ordered a SATA caddy and that the photo fitting was that of a IDE unit.A friend said he had a SATA cd/dvd unit that I could have, but the fittings look just like the one I have. How can I verify I have a SATA or IDE modal ?

For the cost of an external dvd drive you might as well buy a new one. CLICK HERE
