Need to add second hard drive. I assume I need to find a power cable? Pictures attached.

HP 850 SE. Came with a 256 SSD. As you can see in the pictures, I added a 3 GB hard drive. I plugged in the P5 cable but the drive does not show in disk management. I assume I have to add a power supply cord but I do not see it. Please advise.

You've already got power connected, what you need is a SATA cable. Retail boxed hard drives often come with one. Locally Best Buy, Micro Center, JR, Fry's sell them. You might also find one at walmart, target, staples, office depot/max, etc.

Thanks. I see the SATA cable on the 256 SSD in the picture. When I get another and connect to the 3 GB drive, where do I connect the other side to?

Trace the cable that's connected to the SSD to the mother board. There should be an empty slot next to where the SSD is plugged in.

I'm guessing you meant you are adding a 3 Terrabyte (TB) drive, rather than a 3 GB... correct?
