SATA Power Cord

I have an RD240 and want to install a SATA drive in one of the empty bays.  I will use this drive as a dedicated backup.  There are plenty of open SATA connections on the board but no SATA power connectors from the power supply.  The power cord going to the optical dirve appears to be a mini sata power cord.  Anyone know how I can connect a power source to the spare sata drive?
