Power supply I cannot seem to find the power supply for this drive. I have a few of the enclosures but cannot locate the power supply. Any source for the power supplies? Does not seem to be a standard power supply...

    It is an external power supply that has a 4 pin connector to the back of the orange micro drive. It is a round plug with 4 prongs (male) that plug into a round connection (female) on the back of the drive enclosure. It is probably similar to other power supplies that have power bricks except for the connector part.

Bshanker, I have two of these enclosures. The original PS is labeled "Orange Micro Inc", model PA-215. Output is +5V@1.5A, +12V@1.8A. Sorry, no pinout.

Bshanker, Is it an External Power Supply? Is the power supply part of the power cord? I have a few different models and some have built in powersupplies, some have external. Good Luck, Tim

    Check out halfway down the page. They have power supplies and all kinds of cool junk. I am not affiliated with that site but they may have what you need.

    Good Luck

Macally G-S350SUA power supply


  • I have the same Macally hard drive enclosure and I misplaced my power supply also. I used an old IBM Thinkpad power supply. These are common and cheap. The Macally enclosure states 12V DC input, and the Thinkpad PS is rated at 16V but it works fine. The plug and polarity are correct.

I have a LaCie d2 Quadra 500 gb. external hard drive. It is just over three years old. Recently, it suddenly stopped working. No light or fan when powered up, and the hard drive does not spin. No longer...


Hello,
this drive rarely has a power switch issue beside the fact that sometimes it gets misaligned and cannot be properly put in the ON position because of the aluminum casing. If you tried powering on while the backplate is removed and still nothing, look at the soldering of the power switch. If the switch connectors are still all in place, the problem lies more with the power module.
A total lack of power would usually result from the power module being "cooked", so look at traces of burned and cracked chips near the power supply connector on the interface board. If all seems good, make sure the power connector is also correctly soldered.
If the power module is burned, you can replace the interface by buying a used one, but in most cases it is easier and cheaper to buy another enclosure like you did.
Regards,

I have a smartdisk usbflb100 external hard drive, but can't locate the usb cable or the power supply. is it worth trying to find replacements, or should i just move on? i intend to use it as a back up...


You can open the enclosure, and extract the disk-drive, and then attach it as a "slave" disk-drive into any desktop computer, probably just long-enough to copy the less-than-100GB onto your 'C:' drive. Then, buy a new 500GB or 1000GB or 2000GB external drive, for under $100,
and backup to it.

Or, you could buy an "empty" enclosure (with a power-supply and a cable), and "transplant" the disk-drive into that new enclosure.

Yes, any external storage device should be used as a "backup" device,
i.e., ALWAYS create an ADDITIONAL copy of your important files,
rather than INCORRECTLY using the device as the ONLY location for your files.

I seem to have some problem with the power. Its not turning on, blue light indicator not on in the WD 1TB external powered device. assuming the data is intact, but the power is the only issue. How can this...


Purchase an "empty" enclosure, for about $30, and "transplant" the disk-drive from inside your enclosure into the new enclosure (and new power-supply). All your files will be accessible.

I was transfering data from my laptop suddenly an error as occured after that hard disk is not working what to do pls help me out


Which disk is problematic -- the "source" disk (your 'C:' drive) or the "target" disk (your Transcend) ?

The external storage device has several major components:

* USB cable

* external power-supply

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.

Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.

Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.

Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

My Iomaga 500GB will not start up. When I hit the power button on the rear the blue light flashes on very briefly & nothing. I have checked the power supply & that seems fine.


Hello,

Sounds like either your drive enclosure or the drive itself has failed.

If the enclosure has failed and you don't have any crucial files on it that you don't already have elsewhere, contact Iomega for a warranty replacement.

If the enclosure has failed and you DO have important files on it, try having your local PC shop move the hard drive into a new enclosure, if that works you're done, buy the new enclosure.

If the above suggestion fails, your drive is damaged and you will need a pro to help get back your files. If this is the case, reply back with you location(Country, State and City) and I will pass along recommendations for your neck of the woods.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Short Cicuit on my Buffalo external hard disk...Help!!!!!!!!!


First of all Hi!

This Fixya will help you solve this problem. First of all your hard drive should be still ok but you will require to open the hard drive enclosure and replace the power supply (due to the wrong voltage tapping). Please feel free to follow these fixya's not only to recover your photos but get back a working hard drive!

Solution 1: Check fuses
1. Disconnect faulty enclosure from any mains supply
2. If power supply is INTERNAL you will have to OPEN the enclosure but BEFORE you do that WITH THE hard drive UNPLUGGED TURN ON the power switch to discharge the hard drive's internal power supply
2. Open the enclosure and check for any fuses on the inside. There should be one located close to the power swtich from inside. Change it with one of a similar rating because most probably this is the culprit.
3. Try and power up the drive THIS TIME WITH the CORRECT voltage tapping
4. If the power supply is EXTERNAL you do not need to open the enclosure, just change the power supply with a similar one and you should be up and running again.

Solution 2: But the fuse is ok but there is bbq smell when i opened the enclosure!
1. Ok this means that you will need to get hold of the internal hard drive.
2. If you have another computer check if the hard drive is still ok! Here is how:
- Turn off the computer
- Open case , #
- Hook it up to the Internal IDE cable and the internal power connector
- Turn on the computer.
- You should have this detected in my computer as a new hard drive and you
should be able to see all the data in it
2. But probably you still want this as external dont you? Ok buy another enclosure from a computer shop (this time you will just need an empty one)
3. Plug the hard drive in new enclosure. If you're not experienced enough just give it to them to hoook it up for you and FINALLY you should have the reincarnated buffalo hard drive functional again.

Hope this fixya was of help :)

Best Regards
ALx
