along the side of the cable click here on here it is pink is it for power and what are the numbers of the holes?

If you mean the coloured strip that runs all down the edge of the cable, it designates where Pin 1 is , I believe.

Normally you will have the cable plugged into the drive, and the coloured edge will be closest to the power connector on the device.
