I've got an 2.5 inch internal HDD that I'd like to connect to one of the 2 PC's that I have and retrieve data and run some tests on.

Unfortunately it seems that both of the PCs that I have (a Dell and a HP) are small form factor and only have 1 SATA power connector which is being used by the boot drive.

They both have a slim DVD writer which I don't need but it seems that they use the slimline SATA power connector. Is there any way to convert the slimline SATA power connector to a standard 15 pin SATA power connector?

(Both the PC's have the standard SATA data connectors from the MB to the DVD drive so that's not an issue)

In the end, I just bought a 15 pin SATA power male to 2 female splitter to split the boot drive power. Couldn't find anything that would convert the slimline SATA power connector.
