Sata hard drive power line interface

my used hard drive is the IDE power cord interface ( 4-pin). Now the hard drive had bad, and I want to buy a sata power interface. My motherboard has sata interface, but I don't know how many pin the sata hard drive interface to connect the power supply interface. Could I use my old power supply?

You can get adapters that will allow you to connect drives with the newer SATA power interface with PSUs that only provide the older Molex connectors. Have a look here:
