Question about Computers & Internet

I have a Seagate 400GB External Drive (ST3400601CB-RK) for which I have lost the power cord. I have found a cord but am not sure if it is the correct one... what is the volt/ampere required for this drive?

    Thanks for the response!  However, what I am really looking for (though my question did not make this clear) is the DC voltage/current rating after the ac/dc converter going into the case itself.  The power cord I have outputs 12V DC 5A.  I would hate to plug this in and fry my drive if it is expecting something like 5V DC.  So, I am hesitant to just plug it in to see if it works.  There is no power input specified on the nameplate on the back of the case to tell me if the power cord I have is the correct one.

POWER- AC 90V ~ 264V, 47 ~ 63 Hz make sure the power cord specs match.

    Hi Lowdead,



    Unfortunately I was unable to locate a proper replacement cord spec sheet. The only other solution I can offer is, if you have the drive serial #, Seagate can give you the proper specs, without it I could get nada, sorry. 5 A may be to high according to seagate, however without a serial I cannot give you a solid answer.

Attaching it to another PC will just move the problem to the other PC. USB drives frequently have the problem you are seeing.

Please i need the power adapter rating for seagate


Have you got the original power adapter?
If so the voltage details are printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter.
If the external USB Seagate hard drive houses a 31/2" drive then it requires an power adapter that provides +12 volts and +5 volts both supplying approx 2000mA of current.
If the Seagate uses a 21/2" (laptop) hard drive then it only requires +5 volts power adapter.
The only problem is the power connector to the external drive, make sure it suits the external hard drive unit and the power pins are correctly wired for the Seagate. If the polarity of the plug is incorrect lt wired (ie reverse polarity) then it could damage the USB hard drive and adapter case.

Seagate Drive is asking to be reformatted?


Yes your assuumtion is correct, you WILL loose all your data.

I have been there before.... and the outcome was not good.

If your PC will recognize the drive and give it a drive letter, you can run chkdsk (Check Disk) from the Run prompt to verify that the drive does not have damaged sectors. many times chkdsk will fix minor errors allowing you to access the drive again.
Click Start, Run CMD, enter, then type: X: (X being the drive letter of the Seagate) then type chkdsk /r and hit enter. If it completes 100% try accessing the drive again.
If you cannot acquire a drive Letter when you plug in the Seagate try going to Disk Management and assigning a drive letter.
Click Start, then Right click on My Computer and click Manage, then click Disk Management. See if your Seagate drive shows up in the list. If it does, right click on the larger box on the right and see if it will allow you to assign a drive letter.

Another option you may have is taking the hard drive out of the Seagate enclosure and either connecting it as a secondary drive in a desktop PC, or installing it into another external enclsure USB device, and try again to access the drive.

If none of these options work, your last option is to contract a Disk Recovery Service to acquire your data. They are usually very expensive.

You have not yet formatted the drive to work with you MAC. You will need to use your MAC's Disk Utility to format the drive in order to write to the drive, but be aware that formatting will erase everything already on the external drive, so back up anything on the drive you want to keep first.

Power supply for Seagate 400GB


Ebay or seagate.com may be a solution.
I've used those Seagate portables and 2 have caused problems.
Or disassemble the unit, remove the drive and buy a portable case or USB adapter.
