Optical drive and SSD Power cable

I am able to use the same power cable for both my optical drive and SSD and just wonder if that is doable or something might interfere?

    On most computer power supplys there are several SATA power connectors and possibly a MOLEX 4 pin connector as well on a cable.

    Provided the cables are long enough to connect easily you can connect hard drives, SSD's & optical drives on same cable.

    If you had 2 or 3 hard drives on one cable you may want to spread the load onto another cable
