Thanks Caveman, that's my unit.

Are their different types of "sata cable(s)"?

What cables and how many, should I be looking for?

Thanks,

Bob

: Adding a 2nd HDD to K210

Thanks again Caveman, do I also need a MALE to Serial ATA SATA Power Adapter splitter. being that there isn't a spare (so I have to piggyback on the one that is already installed)?
