what you need is a ide power to sata power connector.  I have a few
spares if you need one Art.  And no it will not blow up your drive.

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.
