Question about Beyond Micro (BM120MD3U2) 120 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Beyond Micro seems to have closed their shop and I've lost the power adapter of an external hard drive model - BMMDU2. The drive does not say the type of adapter (power/voltage etc.) needed. Just thought will post this question in case you know either about the power adapter for this specific drive or your recommendation of in general what to try. I have lots of important data on this drive so any help is much appreciated.
I have the same BMMDU2. It's used 12V/1.5A power suply.

Most external HDD's require 12V and about max 2A.
Safe way to go is to try a 5V supply first and see if it works, better scale up with the voltage then down, but the 12 V is a requirement for the motor, while a scaled down 5V will be used for the electrics.
