Does it support 3.5" HDD?
Hi, I see "adapter for 2.5"/3.5" in the item's title. But on the picture I could see that HDD 3.5" "is not supported". So does this cable support 3.5" HDD or no?



Thanks in advance.

No. It wouldn't be able to power a 3.5" HDD. It'll fit and turn on an whatnot, but it won't be able to spin it up using only a single USB power source. Now, if you happen to have a 3.5" SSD...

There is no cable that can support 3.5" HDD.
This is because even the most "power friendly" 3.5 hard disk needs 12 volt dc and 1.5 Amps MINIMUM.
You can't get the power the disk needs from any usb port.
In order to power a 3.5 inch hdd you need a cable that has external power supply, similar to the SKU mentioned above.
