I found a diagram of the motherboard so the problem is solved.
I have a pavilion elite m9340f desktop PC and on the Benicia motherboard there is a connection in the lower left corner next to the hard drive cage that looks like an IDE but it's labeled as esata +1394. It is of 34 pin size but it only has 32 actual pins if anyone could tell me what this connector does or would operate I would appreciate it. I want to add a additional DVD drive that is IDE and wonder if I can plug it in there.
It indicates the connector is for a floppy drive. It look similar to an IDE connection, but your motherboard has SATA connections, which is newer than IDE. Is the some reason that IDE connection is needed instead of the SATA? Newer DVD drives now use SATA instead of IDE.
If you absolutely need a IDE connection, then you will need an adapter similar to this
