I think I might have sorted the problem , one of the power cables to the sata hard drives etc has a spare male sata plug . I put the female and 3 male sata splitter cable ( I posted a pic earlier ) into the spare and plugged a spare sata cable and the spare splitter cable into a spare harddrive I had nothing worked I couldn't restart etc . I had to shut the pc down by keeping the start button in , restarted . Nothing was showing as a new drive I mean , so I shut down and put windows 7 back in ( I'm on 10 now ) when I checked the harddrives I could copy stuff from 7 to here ( horrying ) , so it could work what do you think .

The Windows 7 drive with the folders and files is still showing . Only problem is I tried to connect a spare hard drive I have , and that's not showing . Would I need to format it , its never been used before . maybe its not working at all . I'm going to log off and try to load Windows 7 on a restart , if it works or not . It will be tomorrow before I'm back on here so bye for now .

Hi,
Yep you need one power/ sata to each hard drive and one data cable to each hdd and they should work.

How big is the empty hdd ?

re: connect a spare hard drive - you normally have to go into disk management before it's visible in 'Computer'

Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management

where you should see the new drive, and you can R-click to format, assign or change drive letter etc

When I logged off here last night , I restarted the computer and went into settings . All 3 Drives were listed and I started in Windows 7 no bother . When I go to My Computer only the 2 Drives are showing , but wasnotwas has posted how to fix that . Which will be later this afternoon . The SATA Serial ATA Power Splitter lead 1 Male to 3 Way Female Triple Output Cable , of which I have 2 ( I bought a spare as they were cheap and in case one was faulty ) . The Power cable extension lead where the SATA Serial ATA Power Splitter lead 1 Male to 3 Way Female Triple Output Cable is fitted has 3 spare male plugs ( The Power not the splitter ) . I'm going to have to arrange them so I can get the case door shut , when they are fitted . That will be later today though . Thanks to everyone for their help .

I don't know where else to put this, but I felt this would be a good fit here since there are so many people looking for good cases for performance builds.
