I am looking for an adapter that converts a SATA 15pin power connecter to a 4pin molex connecter. I need to take a 15pin sata adapter and plug it into a hard drive with a 4pin molex connector, hence the need for an adapter. I for the life of me cannot find one.

This is for IT and work related and not for home. In IT we have tons of older drives but the new computers only have sata power connectors. This is critical to reuse older drives in a machine with only sata power adapters.

I don't know why I cannot find one but we need them pretty bad.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Why not get a 4 pin Molex splitter. They are cheap and everywhere.

I found such adapters both at Newegg and Best Buy. Molex splitters are also abundant, as 1haplo wrote.

The new Dells have no 4-pin molex connectors to split off from. So i need a SATA power -> 4pin molex convertor.
