I believe the C65 uses the same power supply as the 1581/1541-II, so
this should work.

Borrowed from :

"This is the pinout of the 1581 power connector. It is shown facing the 
rear of the drive. Note that the same power supply is used for the 
1541-II and the 1571-II. The supply puts out two voltages: +5 volts DC at 
1 Amp and +12 volts DC at 1/2 Amp. Some versions of this supply are rated 
at .7 Amps on the 5 volt output.

          +12VDC -----O       O----- +5VDC

    no connection -----O     O----- GROUND"
