Hello. I bought new Power Suply as my old was, well old. When i wanted to connect it to my computer i discovered that this Power Supply have only two power cables that can fit my WD ATA 80Gb hard disk and my Graphic card. Power supply also have 3 more power cables but their ends are for new hardware (Sata). And now my second Hard Drive and DVD RW are not powered.

Can i just take ends of my old Power supply cables and rewire to this SATA endings that i cant use? Is it same, or they are different in some way ?

Thanks

Best solution
