Time to increase my knowledge of hardware a bit.  A SATA hard drive I inherited had no power supply cord and I don't have a spare for it.  The drive has a connection for a SATA power plug (15 connectors) and one for an IDE connection (four connectors).  My question is this: if I use the IDE connection, will it power it up appropriately or will it blow it up?  Thanks for the learned responses.
