Hi Artrooks
Thanks for your reply. Looking at the connector, so where is the power going to come from since those three things all go into the HDD. I think so anyway

Model 6VD08E0 does not seem to exist. Maxtor DiamondMax10 could be PATA or SATA.

Look at the two data cables shown here http://www.computer-hardware-explained.com/sata-vs-ide.html

Then if it is the SATA you need the SATA power connector, if it is IDE then you need the 4 pin, usually white molex connector for power.

The white on in this picture is what a IDE power connector looks like, The black end is the SATA power connector.
I would expect that the Power supply should have both these days.

Your power supply should have leads that look like the lower two connectors. Just plug the power supply molex connector into the hard drive. The picture is a Y-splitter. You would need one if there were no more available molex connectors on your power supply. The pictured top connector (male) would plug into a power supply molex and give you two (female) connectors for additional devices.

If it's a SATA drive look at rotor123's post. He shows the data cable. The power connection would look like the two black connectors: this or this. Again, these are Y-splitters and would attach to your power supply cable if needed.
