In most cases the power cables are part of the power supply and should be inside the machine. I assume you are talking about an internal floppy, correct?

Ide cable

Thats the cable that connects the floppy to the motherboard.

As far as the power, it comes directly off the power supply, the power supply will have a connection for it.

It could be tucked away or tied away that you don't see it at first.

The one in the link you provided is a hybrid device that performs read and write for flash media and floppy disk. The cable you see is a usb cable that connects directly to the motherboard it is not a power cable.

This is not a standard floppy as they do not need that cable

BTW, a normally floppy does not use an IDE cable. It uses a ribbon cable, but it is not an IDE cable.
