What is the HDD model number, perhaps it accepts either SATA style power plug, or the molex... although, I can't say I have seen a HDD with that option, but that doesn't mean there isn't one.

If it has both the SATA power connector and the molex, you should be able to use either (but NOT both simultaneously). If you only have the molex on your PSU, use that.
