Default Re: Optical Drive Problem

So... what's your question? If you have an extra molex connection (the 4 pin connector for HDD's and optical drives), then you can just get one of these:
Newegg.com - Rosewill 8" Sata Power Splitter Cable Model RCW-302
Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the under my post
