I have the same drive and it uses an Accurian AC/DC Adapter. It's output is 6.3V. Also the model number is XKD-C1500NHS66.3-12. I hope this helps.

I'm pretty sure that XP should pick up your external USB hard drive with relative aplomb unless:
1. The drive is USB 2.0 and your USB ports are 1.0 or 1.1 (and even then it should work, albeit at reduced performance)
2. Your drive is drawing too much power from the USB hub, causing an error condition.
Try plugging it into a different USB port.

I got one with the same problem. I opened up the case and hooked up the hard drive to a generic usb to sata adapter that i picked up on ebay and it works fine now if a bit clunky looking.
