Components for Building Computers From Scratch/DVD connection


I have a DVD burner that uses a 7 pin Sata cable but my hp power source uses a 4 pin connector, I need a connector to go from my sata cable to my power source, can you recommend a connector and where to get it.

Do you mean you need an adapter from 4-pin Molex to SATA power? Like this:

Or do you need a different kind of adapter?

I have nearly two decades of experience in IT, computer repair, and related fields and will attempt to provide the most solid, brand-agnostic advice when it comes time to purchase a new computer, or upgrade an existing machine. I can answer anything from the seemingly basic to the downright complicated - and will do my best to provide this information in a clear and concise manner.


I have been an enthusiast of PC's for many years, and can answer questions about the purchase/use of a new computer or the purchase, installation, and use of upgrades for existing computers. There probably isn't a whole lot related to the home computer that I haven't seen over the years.
