Adding a second optical drive

I havs a Studio XPS 9100 (Windows 7-x64) to which I would like to add a second Serial ATA DVD+/- drive.  To install the drive, what power/data connections do I need and how do they connect?  Would there be any expected conflict with an internal USB 3.0 hub (power useage, etc.)?

Hi Kuzoo,

All you should need is an SATA cable, which often comes with the drive. There will be a spare power connector inside the case. These devices don't use much power, so that should not be a problem.
