Here you go Sergio: Newegg.com - Rosewill 8" Sata Power Splitter Cable Model RCW-302 - Cables

I can't read whatever language the site is in, but Newegg is a very reputable retailer.

Hi Jonathan
That would take weeks for my to get that, since its from the US
This is my local tech store.
I might get a 640gb hdd tomorrow, not sure though.

Though I can't read the language, I don't see one either. Sorry mate.

Edit: What is the language?

Hi Ted.

The language is Danish

Oh btw i contacted Novatech today, and they say they will collect my faulty HDD from my home address next week, and send me a new one.

So i dont think i will get the 640GB tomorrow
But i would still need a splitter like that one. Or just a connecter from the white thing to a SATA stick. Doesnt have to have multiple SATA connecters at the end
