    It its just disconected then you can easily put it back. If it is ripped like you said then yeah you will need to buy a new one.

    Your silver ribbon cable should reattach underneath the cd/dvd rom drive towards the front...just pop the clip in the front of the drive(its a upside down U shape with a black piece of plastic sticking out. This holds the drive down...once thats popped out be careful because there are other cords that are attached to the motherboard on the drive! Just lift slightly and you'll see the white connector for your power/eject cable. It's a little easier to see if you have the bottom half removed

    Also, some of the newer models just have a slot that the ribbon slides into...just carefully use a pair of tweezers to shove it back into the slot.
