Tape Drive has Molex power socket but server only has SATA power cables.

The subject line pretty much says it all.  The tape drive (less than a year old) has the 4 pin molex power connection, but our servers (all brand new) only have SATA power cables.  There are adapters for connecting molex cables to SATA devices, but I can't find any for the other way around.  Surely I can't be the first to encounter this problem.  Is there a solution?

 

TIA Neil

I believe this is the kind of thing you're looking for --

I've found Monoprice to be a good site for many types of hard-to-get cables and connectors at nice prices.
