i dont think that they sell ones with 3 plugs. are you using IDE? if so just get another cable, and plug it in the secondary IDE plug on your mobo.

you have ide all comps do.

But you will need another cable and have a computer that supports RAID

i understand the question. you have optical drives on the secondary IDE controller and two on the primary. buy a card that will add an ide controller. there are plenty to choose from on newegg
