A beginners question here - are the ribbon cable and power cables for these devices interchangeable?

I have both and switching between them means going to the back and under a computer desk to change power supplies and cables which is a pain in the arse - it would be much easier if I could just use the same cables :)


Generally, yes.

The only exception might be if your 3.5" drive requires 12V as well as 5V, but that is unlikely to be the case...

Certainly the ribbon cable I sold you will be usable for both.

Cheers for that @Skunkfish ,

That will make transferring files a lot easier here - my knees say thanks!
