Default Power Cable Connector Problem

I am having trouble with my new HDD I bought, it will not take a 4pin connector it only takes the flat connector? if you know what i mean, the black thin power connector thingy, i know thats a rough explanation but best i can do.

I has a SATa connector, and ive got that, but i havent got a spare black thin power connector to put in, all i have is a 4 pin, is there a cheap way to get around this?

thanks, if you need any more info, just ask. i know i am being quite vague lol.

i believe that this (molex to sata power connection converter):

Newegg.com - APEVIA 4-Pin PC power to SATA Converter Model CVT45

is what you are looking for?
