Just bought a HDD on amazon and I was wondering if it comes with an SATA cable. It didnt say it did, nor did it say it didnt include one. If not, where could I buy one? Walmart? Best buy?

It depends. Often they are oem drives - no screws or leads included.

You might need screws, sata data cable and molex - sata power cable. They are usually very cheap on Amazon, Scan, Aria, etc.

I expect they have them in Best Buy.

It depends on what brand of my Seagate hybrid had one. Western Digital never supplies any unless maybe if you buy it in the box
