One is for if the drive doesn't work correctly due to needing more power. Sometimes PCs can't supply enough power through one port and so this helps.

It is basically a power cable that plugs into a second port to boost power to the drive. If it works without it connected then you can carry on that way.

Basically plug in the main one and try (main ones probably slightly thicker cable or the one the other branches from).

Hope that clears it up.
Thanks.....:) Will tell fiancee this
