Disk port for what computer? Remember that the WiModem232 is being used on dozens of various computer systems.

You could make one easily enough.  Look at the external drive connector.  Pin 12 is +5v and pin 7 is ground.  You could take a generic 24" mini-USB cable and cut off the USB A connector end and then solder the power/ground wires to the drive port connector.  The real problem is that DB23 connectors are becoming very rare.

yeah..thats true..I ordered a vga adapter from Poland and the db23 was butchered...but it works..Smile
