Connecting an old 2.5 HDD to my PC
Well, I own an old SAMSUNG Spinpoint M Series HM120JI 120GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 2.5" Notebook HD that I would like to install in my PC to get some extra storage, the problem is that I don’t know what cables I should use as the hard drive does not support SATA power nor SATA.
Worth mentioning is that I got this HDD from an old laptop.
Thanks for reading this question and I would be grateful if someone managed to answer this question for me.
P.S. Forgive me for my bad english as this is not my first language!! !! !! !!
The pins look like this, did you mean that I should use a regular SATA/SATA power cord?
I tried that and the connectors are different as you can see in the pictures.
is this enough or do i have to take it one step further?
Is this a good question?
