How to transfer data between desktops; incompatible SATA cables ..?

I have an old desktop from 2011, with a 7-pin SATA connector. My new desktop's SATA cable has four "slots," with a raised edge between the 1st/2nd or 3rd/4th slot.

So, I can NOT transfer data easily, by just hooking up the extra power and SATA cable on my new PC to my old PC's hard-drive...

Thoughts on how to get my data off of my old hard-drive? Maybe use an Ethernet cable? Or, a USB?

    What? SATA cables haven't changed since they were invented. Do you have a photo?
