So I have a 2.5" hard drive that i have already screwed into my case using a bracket but when i try to connect it to power, the end will not fit it. It is the same kind of end that I connected to my 3.5" hard drive.

Is there an adapter that I have to buy?

I also noticed that the connectors on the hard drives end are male. Is that significant?

Notebook drives have a small adapter PCB that you remove by pulling on it. That should expose the standard SATA connectors underneath.
