What's this power cable going to ODD bay called?

As I want to put an SSD/caddy in there, I need to figure out what's this one called to buy an adaptor. Any experts?

 

What kind of cable would I need to connect an SSD to this power source with and without the DVD caddy?

that is a floppy disk drive power connection.

You can search for 'FDD power to SATA power adapter'. Dell made a cable called a MX714 that makes this conversion.

I generally buy something like this:

4-Pin Floppy FDD Male to 15-Pin SATA Female Power Adapter Convertor Cable MX714 | eBay

 

Thanks! Is there usually a SATA or slimline SATA power in that bay for ODD? I'm struggling to find power for an SDD I want to mount there.

You use that FDD connector with an adapter such as the one linked above, and then the SATA data cable plugs in next to the internal USB slot iirc...
