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.
Art, no you won't hurt anything by using the 4 pin power connector.
