This is what you need.

Any of the 2.5" cables on this page should be fine

The only thing you need to know is that 2.5" drives don't have a separate power connector like their big brothers. Power is supplied through extra pins on a longer version of the 40-way connector (it's 44-way).

That link that Severin posted shows a cable (right at the bottom) that allows you to connect a standard 40-way connector to a 2.5" drive and have a flying lead that connects to a spare power connector. That might be what you want.

Should be a piece of cake.

It is possible to use regular hard drives on the
smaller HD connector, too.
There's an article showing how to adapt the smaller
44 pin heasder to a regular 40 pin IDE cable.
The writing sucks but the pictures help.

The article also covers serial port and USB hookups,
and other details that have caused problems for some
micro owners.

I have one 2.5" HD and can get another So I'm looking for a 2.5" cable that has power along with it that can take 2 x 2.5"HD and connect directly to the motherboard with out having to buy

1x 2.5->3.5 inch cable plus 2x 3.5->2.5inch converters with power connectors.
