  1. There are two possible pinouts. Choosing the wrong one will seriously damage your drive or enclosure or both:

    If you need to determine which of the pinouts is the correct one, then you could use a multimeter to measure the resistance between each mini-DIN connector pin and the corresponding pins at the SATA or Molex power connector.
