But laptop IDE drives also include power across the IDC connector,
whereas desktop drives use a Molex. So a laptop drive cable isn't just
a desktop 40-pin to laptop 40-pin one -- at least the extra wires need
to be split off and connected to a power plug. I have at least one
such cable somewhere, although more recently, little adaptor gadgets
became cheap and plentiful.
