You could try taking it to a Maplins and asking them if they have a lead. Or any other electrical / electronic component retailer for that matter. The type of connector you use on older keyboards is a PS/2 see here but I dont think it would be used to power a HDD, can you post a picture and maybe I will have a better idea

Thanks

It is a power supply you are wanting, not a cable. Have a hunt on Amazon or Ebay.
