Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3100 (M01E100) 100 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Power cord Can't find original power cord. Want to use another, but...the input specs for the drive says 12V 2A. Also I need to use it in a country where they use 220 volts. So, the questions are: Do I need to get the exact power cords specs for the Amps? (I know I need the 12V), and does the drive take in 220 V w/o conversion to 110V?

Need power supply spec's for this WD25001032 hard


If you can procure it you need a "Wattac" AC adapter
model: BAO362ZI-8-A01 (made in China)

Otherwise you need a 12 volt 2 Amp. power pack with positive on centre contact & 2mm pin hole.

Lost my AC / DC power adapter for Maxtor 3200 Personal Storage , where can I find one to buy?


The following site guarantees compatible replacement.
http://www.lcdpayless.com/productpage.php?productId=2511

I've been searching for a replacement as well. I found the specs on the original cord at the following site.
http://www.libertye-online.com/servlet/the-1642/new-APD-I.T.E.-POWER/Detail

12V, 2A, positive inner post, 2.5 inner diameter (ID) and 5.5 outer diameter (OD).

I don't think I would buy the exact replacement ADP brand fom the site above. Many have complained about it failing at the 2-yr point. I am considering the following replacement from the same website.
http://www.libertye-online.com/servlet/the-1218/new-Challenger-I.T.E.-POWER/Detail

NOTE: the input AC voltage range is different on this one, but it should still work in the USA.

There are other options on ebay.

Let us know if anyone has specific success with any of these or others.

Fried HD?


Yep, it's probably fried, a little too much juice went in.
While the drive itself might be ok, the external casing is another story.

Try opening the case and removing the HD and plugging that in on your PC directly as a slave drive.
