    Default Where do I get another Sata power cable for the ION 330HT-BD?

    I bought the ION 330HT-BD like 3 years ago and never used it much. Now that I have more use for it, I thought to add an SSD while keeping the stock hdd. After starting to install it I realized that I had lost the sata data and power cable that comes with the sytem. The power cable in particular for an extra drive looks like it's proprietary. Is there anyway I can buy these cables ? I tried creating a ticket with Asrock but it seems like they are taking a while in replying. Any ideas ?

    Have you seen the particular cable they're needing? It is definitely non-standard and most likely only obtained from ASRock themselves.

    4-pin power from a rectangular socket on the MB. I suppose if one was creative enough one could make one up. It wouldn't look pretty though.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.

    Still haven't heard from Asrock. I agree, "if only it were that easy" I've checked several places with no success so it does indeed look like the cable is proprietary.

    Did you ever hear from them? I have the same problem.. I wanted to install an SSD and broke the cable that hooks into the DVD player.

    I wound up calling this number : 909-590-8308

    When I called (during regular business hours), somebody picked up right away and was like "Asrock". No automated phone menu which alarmed me. After explaining what I needed they transferred me over to somebody else. They basically told me to send them a request in writing explaining the cable I needed along with a check or money order (they charged 10 dollars for both the proprietary power cable and the short sata cable). I sent them a picture of the accessories list for my model and circled the cable I needed. Within a week I received a package with my address hand written on it but it did have the correct cables inside.

    All in all, a very weird transaction considering Asrock is a major manufacturer and this seemed like the only way to get the cable. I forgot the address but I'm sure they will tell you where you need to mail the request to.

    Good luck.
