Connect 2.5 inch SATA to desktop???
Posted on 2006-11-14
I have a 2.5 inch SATA drive out of a VAIO laptop that is continually rebooting (I can get all the way to the desktop and then bam - it's gone again). I can't get BartPE to recognize the drive (maybe because it's SATA???).
I have removed the drive and am looking at the power and data connectors. They sure like a lot like the one's in my desktop. If I connect this drive to my desktop, will I fry it?
The laptop drive is rated at +5V 0.48A. I'm looking at a 3.5" sata drive that lists +5V 0.46A AND +12V 0.56A.
