I'm trying to connect my Hitachi HDD up but I can only find the Power Connector cables, do I NEED the Jump / ATA Connector cables for this HDD? I tried booting up my comp with just the Power Connector cable connected to it but I got the "Boot up with a readable hard drive bla bla" message.

Exact model of HDD - HDT722525DLAT80

"Jump" isn't a connector, it's for changing drive settings with jumpers.

You do need a PATA cable (preferably 40-pin, 80-wire) connected to the ATA connector on the drive and the board/controller to use the drive. It's how data is transfered.
