    1. SSD im adding to SATA1 (6gb)
    DVD/CD im adding to SATA2 (3gb)
    2. SSD im adding to SATA0 (6GB)

    BUT im missing sata power, what kind of connector is this !? (see red cirkel)

    Bump

    I would also like to knopw the answer on this one.

    Searched all over the net and I can't find the information I need.

    Wondering if the HDD power cable that is currently in there can just be plugged in to the Superdrive, but I don't know :confused:

    Your current HDD should be plugged into the SATA0 slot with the proprietary power cable and standard SATA data cable. Then use standard SATA cables for the other 2 drives using SATA1 and SATA2.

    SATA0 is your primary SATA port, so you shouldn't have any trouble providing you use the same cabling and just source other cables for S1&S2

    So the current hdd power cable will be just a normal sata power on the drive end ? And I can plug this into an SSD or the optical drive?

    Yea, on the hard drive side is the standard SATA connections so putting in an SSD will be no bother
