Yes, you need this cable (from ALLNET). With a regular power adaptor (5V 2A), you can use it with an SSD-drive. A regular power adaptor is probably not strong enough to power the banana pi AND the HDD you want to use. To make it work, I use a 5V 3A power switch that powers the banana pi and the HDD as in the picture below.HDD_Connect

The red and black cable are cut and connected to the power switch. The banana pi is powered by the power connector that is intended for the SATA-Drive. Make sure the red cables are connected to +V of the power switch, the black cables to -V

Hope this helps.
