Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
IS THE VOLTAGE 5--0. VOLTS DC OR 12--0, VOLTS DC. OR SOMETHING IN BETWEEN? ALSO IS THE CENTER PIN OF THE DC IN PLUG POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE. ??? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY CORRECT INFO.
THE ANSWER TO MY QUESTION WAS FOUND OUT BY MYSELF BY VISITING A REPAIR / SERVICE DEPARTMENT AND MAKING ENQUIRIES CONCERNING THE DC OUTPUT OF THE AC ADAPTER ASSOCIATED WITH THE WESTERN DIGITAL, MY BOOK 250GB USB. tHE VOLTAGES ARE THESE. : - AC INPUT = 100 - 240 VOLTS 50/60 HZ
DC OUTPUT = 12 VOLTS ( REGULATED ) 2 - 0 A
CENTER PIN OF 12 VOLT DC INPUT PLUG IS " POSITIVE "
THANK YOU FOR THE SPACE TO ASK MY QUESTION.

If the output voltage (from the mains to the AC Adaptor for your 'My Book') is too weak - your 'MY BOOK' will not operate - If it is too high - your 'MY BOOK' will fry.
