    I know this is a really stupid question, but if I install a burner with an existing cd-rom, do I need to plug in a power cord from the power supply to each one or just the master? I think I have finally figured out the rest after a 2-month struggle (@#$^$!!), but I haven't gotten the answer to this one. Thank you in advance!

    Yes.

    Every individual device will need its own power connection.
