Urgently need the below sata HDD cable.

 

ITX Hard Drive Data Power Supply Integrated Cable Small 4Pin Female & SATA 3.0 Male to SATA 22Pin(7+15Pin) Data Power Cable 25cm.

 

I can get this from aliexpress, but we are looking at somewhere around 2+ weeks for delivery. For ultrasound vet type machine. The existing one randomly faults.

 

Any NZ retailers or private sellers considered.

and

then wire the molex ports together (unless you can find a molex male to male connector)? Never done it, just an overcomplicated solution/suggestion.

 

 

 

EDIT: oh wait, never mind, i didnt see the price of that first one haha. but im sure you can find similar headers cheap enough elsewhere.

Holy crap at that price lol. Buy the combined connector and grab an old PSU with floppy power connector - just cut it and combine with a molex from the same PSU. if you don't just want to use elctrical tape you could be super pro and put some heatshrink on it.

Yeah that was expense for sure! According to tech he tried other combinations of other connectors, but none would work as wired up differently.

 

Lucky we have a spare working unit that we will have to borrow the connector from as a bridge measure while we wait for china delivery.

If the Ali one is cheap enough, just order it anyway in case nothing else pans out. Post-virus, shipping from there has been amazingly quick, one week where I'd normally expect around a month.

Molex to male shouldn't be hard to find, those were used for floppy drives so it's just a case of digging one out of a spares bin. Can't immediately find one in NZ but Amazon has them, just need to find someone who'll do express shipping. I'm sure I have one somewhere, would just need to dig it up.

oh yeah, how about this? https://www.amazon.com/Floppy-Drive-SATA-Power-Cable/dp/B082TZ4MJN

 

Im assuming you could probably pay more to get super fast shipping from amazon?

Does it not fit just a SATA data and power cable separately?

 

 

 

I have one of the mobile optical drive ones, but that's 5V only and narrower.

 

 

 

I do have at least a Berg/FDD to Molex adapter and probably a molex to SATA adapter in Wellington?

After another look, unfortunately it seems mine aren't the correct 4 pin plug
