Panasonic JA751 8" drive question

I just purchased one of these on ebay, but am unable to find even a shred 
of documentation on the web.

It's equipped with a "PC" style 4-pin Molex connector for power, unlike 
the more usual 6-pin square connector used by all my other 8" drives. 
What I'd like to confirm is whether this unit can actually run on 12VDC. 
It does not seem to work correctly with 12V applied, which could suggest 
either that it requires 24V or is defective.

Before I let the magic smoke out of it, does anyone know the proper 
voltages for this drive?
