I know there is a lot of questions like this but this is different.
I have only 2 sata ports which are occupied by a SSD and a HDD. But I have extra Molex power connector. And the DVD drive is old which has SATA power and also the Molex 4 pin power input. I also have a SATA to USB convertor used for 2.5 inch sata HDDs, which I removed from an external Seagate HDD.
But this SATA to USB convertor doesn't have enough power to power the DVD drive.
So my question is "Can I power the DVD drive using molex and connect the SATA to USB to get the data from the DVD drive?"
The only problem is the SATA to USB also provide a little power to the DVD drive. Does it fries the DVD board?
