I have just added a new hard drive to my computer and I want to stay with the old one as the HD for game , But when I went to install it there is no more power cord to give power to the extra HD. I have A CDR & CD ROM, HD & Internal Zip Drive.
What should I do are there plugs to convert one into two ? or will a new powwer supply with more connectors will be needed.
Thanks

You can get a converter to double up a power plug. I know because I've received them free with certain hardware before now! Where you'd buy one is another question.

Power splitters are available from most general electronics parts retailers. Just specify the type needed.

Depending on what kind of video card you've got you may want to also consider upgrading your power supply.. especially if its something like a 230 or 250.. 2 HDs draw alot of power.. and you want your CDR to be a very happy customer when its burning stuff and not getting enough juice makes any computer component act funky..
