Got enclosure + OEM drive: Need power connector?

#1

I just purchased a Pioneer 116 DBK off of Newegg along with an enclosure and I’m unsure whether or not I need to supply my own 4-pin power connector going from the enclosure to the back of the drive.

Here’s the drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827129023

and here’s the enclosure: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817145152

What do you guys think…will I have everything I need out of the box? Or should I start rummaging around for a power connector.

Thanks

Hi,

normally all connectors and cables needed come with the enclosure.

Why not get an external burner?

I actually had the first one on that list, the Samsung, but I returned it because I was having all sorts of odd issues with it.

I used to have a Pioneer 109 in a different enclosure back a few years ago and it worked flawlessly, so i wanted to go back to a trusted brand even if the total package was a little bit more.

Plus this one will have firewire :slight_smile:

You can have a Pioneer for 79.99, not good enough? :wink:
Oh well…

It’s slower and does not have firewire for the same price :slight_smile:
