How to power the SATA HDD ?

    Wondering, if this device is for connecting a IDE hdd or SATA HDD ?
    If it's for connecting SATA HDD, how is the power supply to be connected ?

    SATA 7+15 pin = SATA cable+ SATA power cable
    Thanks for your time and patience.

    Thanks for sharing the info about the 7+15 Data+Power cable. But I don't understand if this is the right solution.

    According to the Overview for this product : " Allows connect your old IDEmotherboard with 2.5" SATA HDD".
    This means this device will connect a 40-pin IDE cable from the 40-pinonnector to the motherboard.
    The black connector (7+15) connects to 3.5" or 2.5" hdd. Then where does the power come from ?

    If based on your suggestion to use the cable, then the white connect goes to power supply and red cable goes to hdd. Again, the power to hdd is missing.
