Mobile 2.5 Hard Drive Systems: MD2-USB and MD2-FW1 from DataFab

Power Supply Via Keyboard Connector

The power cable of the MD2 drive system is a curious piece of hardware, since you hardly find any similar ones on the market. The manual mentions either a standard power supply or the keyboard power cable. As you can see on the picture, the keyboard connector is tapped to provide power for the drive. DataFab also included an adapter for the 'old' AT keyboard connector .
