SimpleTech 320GB external hard drive power adapter

Ok... I accidentally tossed my ac adapter into a batch of other ac adapters. I checked all the plugs and I found 4 of them are able to connect to the external hard drive. Can someone can tell me how much volts does it required to power up? Because I am afraid to bust my external hard drive.... got some inportant stuff in it.

I have the same drive and it uses an Accurian AC/DC Adapter. It's output is 6.3V. Also the model number is XKD-C1500NHS66.3-12. I hope this helps.

I have a simpletech 320 gb pininforte external hard drive, and I lost the ac/dc adapter. I wasn't sure what it looked like as it wasn't shown anywhere on the box so I tried some I have around and I think...


It needs a 12V 1.5A adapter. But if the light was on for a short while, and it doesn't do anything anymore with the same adapter.. Doesn't sound very good.. I wish you all the luck with the external HDD!
