The Cary 50 does not have its own power supply; it uses the power supply from
the computer. You will need to connect the Cary 50 to the computer power
supply.
To do this, you must first determine whether there is a spare power connector
coming from your computer power supply. The power connector will consist of four
wires (two black, one yellow and one red) and a white connector, which is
approximately 2.5 cm (1 in.) in wide.
NOTE
If your computer does not have a spare connector coming from its power supply, follow the
instructions in Chapter 4 of the Cary 50 Hardware manual, and then continue with Step 10.
9
Connect the hard disk power supply connector to the connector on the Cary
PCI card by pushing the connector all the way in until it clicks. If it is not long
enough, join the two provided power supply connectors together.
10 If you have purchased any accessories for your Cary 50 that require the
Accessory Cable Kit (part number 9910094300), install this now. Refer to the
Cary 50 Accessory Cable Kit instructions for details.
