    12 volt Molex connector. Lots of older hd and cd drives used these to power the drives.

    It was the old power connector before they came up with SATA power connectors. They keep them around for backwards compatibility, mostly for fan adapters and such as the drives that need that power plug would also need an IDE data connector that hasn't been included on motherboards for a long time.

    It's the female half of a Molex connector used in old IDE hard drives. Yes, it's a four-pin connector. If you have a SATA hard disk, use the 15-pin SATA power connector.

      That's the male half, you need to plug it in to get it to work.

    That is a Molex connector. It is used to supply power to devices like a hard drive, optical disk drive, fan, etc. Most modern parts don't use it anymore; instead, they use a SATA power adapter which has 15 pins instead of the 4, and is slimmer.
