    To give a less terse reply than RS:

    It's a SATA drive.

    It has both a SATA *power* connector and the old 4 pin type used on PATA
    drives. (Use one or the other, but never both.) WD calls it "FlexPower". The
    only signal connection is SATA.

    Address scrambled. Replace nkbob with bobkn.
