USB Type-C to SSD/SATA/IDE 2.5/3.5/5.25-INCH Hard Drive Converter

With UL Power Supply & LED Activity Lights [10TB Support]
  • The Everything Adapter: The Sabrent USB-C to SATA/IDE 2.5”/3.5”/5.25” Drive Adapter (USB-DS12) supports SATA and IDE hard drives (HDDs), solid state drives (SSDs), and optical drives (CD/DVD-RW) in the 2.5”, 3.5”, and 5.25” form factors through a convenient USB connection.
  • Drive To USB: It’s never been easier to take your storage, old or new, and connect it for data management. SSDs, HDDs, and optical media are supported through a 5 Gbps (USB 3.2 Gen 1x1) USB-C connector with throughput limited by the drive’s interface at up to SATA 3Gbps (“SATA-II” / SATA-300) speeds.
  • Powerfully Compatible: 3.5” and 5.25” drives require additional power to operate and we’ve included a 12V power adapter and a 4-pin Molex connector for maximum flexibility. Connect even your old IDE hard drives and optical drives with confidence.
  • Easy Deployment: The USB-DS12 adapter is plug and play, hot-swappable, with no drivers required. The integrated cable makes it portable and easy to use for everyday drives. Plug it in and the blue power status LED will let you know that you’re good to go.
  • It’s Sabrent: This product is designed for use with Windows, macOS, and Linux, but will work with other devices. Please visit our website at to register your device or to receive technical support. Thank you!

What chipset does this adapter use?

Does this adapter work with SSDs?


Is the power adapter required?

Certain devices, such as 3.5" HDDs, require 12V power that is not provided by the USB cable. Other devices, such as a 2.5" SATA SSD, should work with just the power supplied through USB.
