Thanks for the fast response! Are you sure this will work? The power cable to the HD in my 8400 is a 5 pin connector. This adapter does not appear to account for that---- or am I just not seeing the whole picture??
You can use a SATA power connector to 4-pin molex adaptor shown HERE, but try to buy it locally, because the S&H, is ridiculous
Personally, I've found it easier to use a USB 2.0, powered IDE external enclosure, like THIS
So I need the IDE/SATA adapter card mentioned above and the molex adapter for the power cable, right? Or an external box with a USB cable. It's funny how they make no mention of the need for a power cable adapter where they sell the IDE/SATA adapter card. They just let you think that's all you need.
Thanks for your help!
