I recently purchased and SAS drive and SAS controller and I was wondering wether a sata power cable can be connected once this cable (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Adaptec-ACK-I-mSASx4-SAS4x1-FO-1m-R-CABLE-/120643138373) is attached to the drive.
SAS and SATA are the same thing, the only difference is SAS is encrypted over the SATA cable.
But the connectors as diffrent...
Why did you get a breakout SAS card if you weren't going to be running multiple SAS drives? They make SAS cards with regular SATA connectors. You should have bought one of those.
