It seems that the stress of two drives was too much for this setup. The power supply died not long after running both drives on one, but I've just gotten back around to this. So I have a few questions about running drives from a wall adapter:
For hard drives the molex setup is 12V, Gnd, Gnd, 5V. Is the 5V needed? If not a normal "wall wart" 12V would do?
But if all those are needed would you have to use both a 12V and a 5V adapter and wire it up separately?
Or what other options are there for a setup to power drives separately from an enclosure?
