About 2 years ago, our son bought us a ''WD My Book Essential, 1 TB to back-up our data's. As we had to move 2x we lost the part from the WD to the powerpoint (sorry my English). How do we get a new one...

I hope you see this post as we have no mail based reply system.

Assuming I understand you, you have lost the AC adapter. The cord that connects your My Book to the wall outlet.

In that case there is no simple way to replace the adapter. The simplest solution is to take the My Book to a local computer store and have them move the hard drive inside to a new enclosure. The technicians Should be able to do this for about $40USD or equivalent.

I hope this helps FixYa,

Notebook cant see my 30 giga hdd

i assume the armada is a compaq product? if so, you may want to read your installation documentation- hdd may have jumpers, or spacers that need to be re-located! if it's not a compaq 'compliant' product, then good luck! compaq hardware is very 'proprietary'! meaning, if our laptop don't like it, then it don't work!! i've tried compaq ram on a toshiba- slotted right in! no prob. 'til i booted! didn't like it! seems very unfriendly to me! if your hdd 'kit' is supposedly compatible with your laptop, then, as i stated- check dox for jumper, or spacer settings. remove hdd and check for bent pins!! if there are any, very, very carefully- using fine tweezers- straighten them until they socket properly!
break one of and you're s.o.l.!
you may have a friend with the proper tools, and a steady hand who could assist, it there's a bent pin!
the hdd can appear to seat properly, but still have a bent pin. check any jumper/spacer settings first! also compatibility with your armada!
good luck!
