Question about Computers & Internet
I am trying to replace my desktop hard drive. I have a Gateway 510XL. My new WD SATA hard drive does not have a 4-pin power connector like my old WD HD. My question is can I replace the 4-pin power cord with newer style SATA power receptacle connector and use that to connect to the motherboard OR do I have to find a new HD with a 4-pin connector?
You can purchas a SATA power cord addapter that can assist you. The cord is called SATA Serial ATA Power Cable. Unfortunetly, Best Buy™ does not carry these cables. You can however google the cord and order it online for cheap.
