Where can I find a second hard drive cable for my HP DV7-6143CL Laptop?

I recently purchased a Crucial M4 128 GB SSD for increasing the performance of my laptop. When I took out the bottem cover, I notice that the 2nd bay cables were missing. Is that a freaking joke!? HP sold me a laptop which is “upgradeable” but at the same time it’s not. I don’t want to spend almost $40 for a dang wire ! Is there any place that I can buy that wire for a lower price? Or is there any HDD cable extension cord that I could use the power up the original HDD since I am going to use the SSD as the primary drive. The length of the 2nd bay cable is around 5.5 inch. If so I would be really appreciated.
