What type of power Sata cable


Novice Member
I had a Pace HD box.
I bought a second hand drx890 locally

The HDD was missing from this. Along with the data data and power cable.
I installed a 1gb drive.

The problem I have is the power cable for the HDD.
I have used the cable from my old box.
When I have the power cable plugged in the amber light comes and that's all. Basically the box isn't booting up

Do I need to modify the cable for it to work.

I am currently powering the HDD from a PC parked beside the skybox. But herself is giving me grief.

Thanks in advance
