Angry Compaq presario 5000 2nd dvd rom

Jesus, I'm just about to pull my hair out !!!!

I have a compaq presario 5000 and am trying to bring it into 21st century. I've managed to fit a slave hard drive after about 30 crashes and reboots, but now have 32 gig instead of 12, yippee !!

Now I'm trying to fit a rewritable dvd thingy. It already had a dvd player and cd rom, so I'm replacing the cd rom with the DVD rewriter, cos it plays cd's too, which I think is the right decision?

Only problem is, once I'd figured out how to get the blinkin' thing out of the PC, I've found that there are not enough connections to power the drive up.

Has anyone managed to do this and if so, could you please tell me to save my sanity.

Thanks a lot
