Can I purchase cable in order to connect three drives ie two extra connectors inserted rather than one? I have replaced my DVD Rom drive with a DVD rewriter but cannot now copy DVD to DVD. I would like to keep my CD rewriter already installed. Terry

Is it possible to buy connectors to join two cables together? The location of the second hard disc is to far away to fit using a standard cable. Thanks
