Hi. I work with 2.5 sata drives a lot and am tired of opening my case each time. Is there a way to make a USB to 4 pin molex power connector? Maybe two USB connectors to get enough power, something like this. I would then use 4 pin to sata 15-Pin adapter to the drive, namely a WD2500BEKT. Would that provide enough juice to power the drive?
Thanks guys, all those are really great. But I already knew about them, and wanted to know if I could get enough power for the drive from the USB. If not, the external ac adapter was my plan B, but buying something pre-made is never as rewarding as when you solve a problem with a DIY!
