Need Power Supply for Addlogix-Compucable FireXpress 250 (FX-EB-25) external HDD enclosure

This drive has been sitting around for a couple of years and I want to hook it up to my laptop. Unfortunately forgot which power supply works with the ext. 2.5" enclosure (the enclosure does not label/indicate the req. power supply). Does anyone know the correct output/input voltage power supply for this Compucable FireXpress 250 FX-EB-25 HDD Conversion Kit?

SOURCE: switching power supply ??

For your purposes there is no difference: all you need to know is the voltage your WD drive requires, and the maximum current load it needs. Any regulated DC power supply with that voltage and *at least* that current will do.

Not-so-technically, a "regular" power supply will supply power at the correct voltage by "discarding" a portion of the extra potential. A "switching" power supply will shunt and switch the extra power away, so that instead of being "lost", it is "not requested" from the uplink grid. In theory a perfect switching supply will have no losses, and therefore dissipate no waste heat (in practice there will be some losses, and cooling will be needed). The important thing, though, is that a switching power supply can deliver twice as much power as a "normal" supply, and the same power in a half as big package.

the power regulator inside the external enclosure is probably dead the drive itself may still be intact,you can remove the dribe from the enclosure and run it as an internal drive if you have any free ports or you can buy a new enclosure for it and it should run fine.

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.

Ac adaptor will not work


Go to any computer-store, and buy a new "empty" external drive enclosure.
Then, "transplant" the disk-drive from your W.D. enclosure into the new enclosure.
All your files will remain accessible, and the new power-supply will power your disk-drive.

> icon does not show up on the desktop or finder

A major "clue" that one component of the external storage device has failed, namely:

* USB cable (try a different one)

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

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

* optionally, the external power-supply that connects to the enclosure

Use a multi-meter to verify the voltage/amperage output of that power-supply.
(Not all external storage devices need such a power-supply.)

> can it be saved?

Partially. Disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage-device. (Compare it to a heart-transplant -- same body, new heart.)

I am looking for a power supply for my external hard drive WD5000H1U-00


It may be cheaper to take the drive out and buy a new external enclosure or caddy.
A replacement power supply from amazon is $25 http://www.amazon.com/Adapter-External-Essential-Expander-Compatible/dp/B003GMJ334

A caddy to fit the drive in can cost from $5, it depends if you want to use the extra functions the current enclosure offers

External hard drive fell off table now ''drive not found''


Hi,

these drives are a bit delicate and do tend to damage easily when dropped. You may just have knocked a cable loose, could have damaged the usb controller board or may have damaged the HDD.

If you're not concerned about warranty, you can slide the shell off of the body of the drive with a little prying around the back edge(around the metal end with all the plugs. It can be put back when you're done but you will likely leave some tool marks on it.

Once you have it open you will see the HDD mounted along the cases length, at one end it has two small cables attached. ensure they are snug, then follow each to it's other end and ensure they are snug, the check the small circuit board running perpendicular to the HDD to ensute the pinned end it securely attached to the larger ciruit board.

Test the drive, if no luck the next step involves buying a new drive enclosure. Go to you local computer store and ask for a 3.5" SATA Hard Drive enclosure. Then finish disassembling the Western Digital, removing the HDD and placing it in the new Enclosure, be careful not to touch the circuit board attached to the bottom of the hard drive.

Once you've installed the HDD in the new enclosure plug it into your computer and power it up. If this works your done, if not the HDD may be finished.

Still if this doesn't work you can send the HDD for recovery to a pro, try Armor-IT Data Recovery in Canada, they have good rates and are listed on FixYa's directory.

Hope this helps FixYa
