Solved!

Power Connector on Slim DVDRW

HP Recommended
Pavilion 550-130
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I changed my power supply with a New Rosewill, I am having one problem, The power supply did not come with one of the connectors that I need, I need to buy an adapter, but do not know the name of this connector, it is the connector that provides power to the DVDRW drive, it looks like a regular SATA connector, but is much smaller, looks to only have 7 pins, ang it has the L shape like a SATA connector, anybody know what this is called?

I need to buy an adapter that can connect this to Molex

 

Thanks in Advance

Thats close but still not it, I uploaded a photo, but it needs to be aproved, the power supply I bought is one of those rosewill modular ones, and I have an extra cable left over, I wont use the old one so I'm thinking I might just solder the original connector onto the extra cord, just need to figure out the wire configuration

The one on the left is the one I am trying to identify, it is next to a regular 15 pin Sata connector for size reference
