I would like to fit an additional DVD drive in my 6 month old HP 7755m PC. I have looked in the PC case and cannot see any spare SATA power connectors although there is 2 or 3 standard power plugs. Can one of these plugs be converted by way of an adaptor plug? Or is there another way to connect the drive.
Totally-braindead I have already purchased a Lite-on SATA drive, mainly because the existing drives already fitted are SATA. Because of these I didn't foresee a problem. HP's Upgrading Guide states thare are 2 free SATA connectors on the Mobo. Would one of these be a power socket?
Skidzy I have just had a response from an e-mail to HP, and they state "you need to buy an additional SATA power connector from your nearest HP reseller" but they don't say where to plug it in. I think your idea about the adaptor looks good so will look into that further.
