Power cord


If the voltage is the same, and the current of your replacement adapter is equal to / greater than the original, it should work perfectly fine.
BUT..
The only thing to pay attention to is if it is AC or DC. AC requires nothing more for you to do. DC however, will require that you have the proper polarity: PLUS (+) and MINUS (-) on the mating plug contact points. If you guess at this, you have a 50/50 chance of turning it into "toast". If the socket is unmarked, contact the manufacturer to obtain polarity information BEFORE connecting!
Good luck!

I have the Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 250GB External Hard Drive. I have moved and lost the power cord. I purchased the DYNEX 500ma Universal AC Adapter as a replacement. When I plug the...


I don't have a photo of the AC adapter, but if you look on it the Voltage and Amperage specifications are;

Input: 100-240VAC / 50~60Hz
Output: 12VDC / 2A

This means the Input power can be from 100 volts to 240 Volts AC, and at 50 to 60 Hertz

The Output power is 12 Volts DC at no more than 2 Amp's. (Amperes)

Asian Power Devices Inc. has a model DA-24B12 that fits these specs.
Also a Wattac AC adapter model number - BAO362Zl-8-A01 will work.

Otherwise just use a 12 Volt, 2 Amp power pack, with a positive on center contact, and a 2mm pin hole

Lost my AC adapter, and dont know what the adapter specs are so as to get a new one


You'll need a 12V, 1.5 Amp power supply. Center pin is positive (+).
Something like this should do.

I have tried to order replacement power cord 12 volts 2 amps for maxtor 3200.I haven't been able to find one.


Hi,

This is a common problem, most of the AC cords for these devices cannot be purchased seperately.

You have 2 basic options:

1. Purchased a used model of the same model # off eBay or a similar Auction site and use it's AC cord

2. Take the drive as is into your local computer store and purchase a new External drive caddy which will include it's own AC adapter(usually $30-$50) and ask their technicians to move you maxtor drive into the new caddy. There is one thing they will need to no, what type of HDD it is, SATA or IDE but if you do not know they will be able to tell as soon as they open the maxtor shell.

Either way you should be able to access all of your files, just a question of seeing which way will be cheaper and easier for you. I generally recommend the second method as the new shell will come with it's own warranty should something fail which used parts generally do not.


Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris

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.
