Default sata hard drive question

i just bought a refurbished maxtor 300 gb hard drive... and ive got 2 other sata hard drives.... all the sata's ive seen take basicly 2 power cords and then the one sata cord... on the maxtor i just got, it only has a place for the one power cord... and on the other side, where its supposed to have a cord is empty... the drive works and everything, but im just thinkin that its not right.. coz ive looked at pix of maxtor hard drives, and they all have the 2 power plug ins.. any input would be great, thanks

Well, if it works just fine, why are you worrying? To me, some hard drives had different connections... although that DOES sound strange to me, what you have. Why do the other sata need connectors? I think sata looks like this: http://images.ldlc.com/photos/00/00/...00347390_2.jpg
I am right?

only reason i worry is because i dont want it to lack in performance if it is supposed to have both.... because thats what they all look like from what ive seen... also if they jumped it do both run off one power cord, maybe it will produce more heat.. etc...
