The following site guarantees compatible replacement.

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.

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.

I have lost the cable that conect my Master Personal Storage 3200 with electricity. The serie number is L59NDXY There are very important photo's of my grand childeren stored. please help...


There are 2 parts: The power supply and a power cord. If you lost the power supply you have to contact the seagate support. They will send you one and charge a fee if it is out of warranty.

If you lost the 2 pin power cord- this one is standard and in any good electrical supply store you can buy one for not much money. Take the power supply when buying and make sure you buy the correct one.

I need to buy a power adapter for my maxtor 3200 does best buy or radio shack sell it


Hello,

Neither company sells this specific adapter but Radio Shack/The Source may have universal adapters. My advice however would be not to replace the adapter as universals are not 100% reliable and cost about the same amount as replacing the entire enclosure. Simply pop into Radio shack or any PC shop and ask the technicians to swap your drive into a new enclosure, they range from about $20 to about $50 but most of the $20 ones will have everything you need.

Once the drive is in the new enclosure you can use the new AC adapter that came with it and you're back in business.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris
