Beware of powering such a drive with standard adapters, if I am right these drives have +5/+12V swapped. So plugging in a Molex to Berg the way it's intended to be plugged in could kill your drive logic.

If this drive has its own power, just connect the KryoFlux to USB an all is fine!

I'm back in Europe and have my SF-7000 with me.

Specfreak: all your links are down. Are you still selling the adapter? I am still a bit confused as to which drive I would be able to use safely.

It is possible to assert of the quality of a drive by dumping a dummy disk and analyzing the flux?

Thanks.

Yes... Can you identify the lines on the power connector of your drive?
