WD purple HD use a 4pin to 15pin adaptor?

Can a 1Tb purple drive use a 4pin Molex to 15pin sata power connector? 

Where on the WD website are installation instructions/user manuals?  Not under “installation guides” or “downloads”.  Website is not very helpful!


I have not tried this because it is not supported. Lets see if another user can share some experience regarding this.

Using adapters or converters on Serial ATA or EIDE 

I was talking about a power cable, not a data cable.

BTW,  I got the answer on Amazon.com, it is compatible.

the WDC website support section leaves alot to be desired.

It should work just fine… i have used before ide to sata without any kind of problems if you have a good power supply dont be afraid to use it
