What if my hard drive only has 3 connections to the motor

Then you should find the "center" one using an Ohmmeter and _not_ use that one. See the right image in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Wye-delta.svg

Hmmm, I just realized that this project relies on all four wires. Sorry, I don't know how to fix it :)
 Solder what kind of cables, standard electrical cables or audio or video cables?
There isn't much of a difference between the two...
22 gauge wire will do fine :)
