IDE/(E)SATA = 12v
-doesnt provide any power at all, so you have to use a separate transformer
-does as its an esata port combined with the four usb pins that provide 5v of power, enough for a 2.5" (ie laptop) hddrive.
-In desktops (and some laptops) in addition to the esata and usb pins there are also two 12v ones, providing enough power for a 3.5" drive or a cd/blu-ray drive.
What im asking is how can i find out if i have the extra 12v pins as i have a laptop and a 3.5" drive
