So I need to play some Blu-rays on my pc and was hoping to save a bit of money by using my old laptops blu-ray drive.. The laptop is broken so I will have to get it to work with my desktop.

After looking around awhile I found some adapters, I'm just a bit doubtful if these ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Startech-SATA-Optical-Drive-Ada... ) are for what I want to do.. I know from installing my current DVD drive that it needs both a sata power and data cable to work, this adapter only allows for a data cable...?

If anyone could suggest what I should be looking for instead, or how to power my drive with that adapter that would be great!

Thanks,

When you look at the #3 picture from the link you posted. You can see the 4pin power in the lower right hand side and the left side. You need buy other SATA 15pin Male to 4pin Molex for the power.
