I had bought by mistake a cable that has SATA connector on one end and eSATA on the other.
My intention was it to have SATA connectors on both ends, so that I connect a normal SATA HDD on the motherboard.
I can't send it back because it was my mistake, the store page shows it's eSATA. So I'd like to know if the cable is useless or if I can still use it.
Can I use the eSATA connector on the HDD or the motherboard? Or does its eSATA male connector work only on an eSATA female connector?
In that case, if I use it on an eSATA connector on the motherboard, does it work on a normal SATA HDD externally if I use a SATA power cabe too?
