I'm traveling to India where electricity is 240. Do I need to buy a power converter for my Asus laptop?

most laptop power supplies support full range power input. meaning it will accept any normal outlet voltages used anywhere. if you look at the power supply of your laptop it should say vin (voltage in) 100v to 240v 50/60 hz, or close to that if it is.

How can I get a replacement power supply?

What you are after is an AC adapter this model I found on ebay has 120 volts to 240 volts to 12 volts make sure the DC voltage output matches the Voltage of your hard drive. The current output has to be the same amount or larger in value. So if your drive needs 2A a 2A or larger value means it can handle the current load put on it by the Hard drive.

this one below matches the exact model number of your hard drive

Power cord

If the voltage is the same, and the current of your replacement adapter is equal to / greater than the original, it should work perfectly fine.
The only thing to pay attention to is if it is AC or DC. AC requires nothing more for you to do. DC however, will require that you have the proper polarity: PLUS (+) and MINUS (-) on the mating plug contact points. If you guess at this, you have a 50/50 chance of turning it into "toast". If the socket is unmarked, contact the manufacturer to obtain polarity information BEFORE connecting!
Good luck!

Lost power cord

I believe that you would be ok. Voltage has to be "Spot on." Amperage, however, needs to "meet or exceed." Think of Voltage as pushing something into something. Think of Amperage as pulling something out of something. It won't draw more amps than it needs, even if they are available. Allow me to thank you for including the powerpayless website as until your post I didn't know what voltage I was looking for. Exactly the same thing happened to me with my SimpleTech 1TB. Perhaps we both solved eachother's problems. PS: I'm going to check with Radio Shack for a 12v adaptor with at least 3.5 Amp capacity. They might can beat the $30.00 which is what the above mentioned place gets including shipping.

Need to know where to purchase simpletech 963000-41001-011 ac adaptor

Often you can find power supplies on eBay but I could not see anything that matched your equipment but you may want to try a search again another time.

I'm not sure what part of the world you are in but if you take your broken power supply into an electronics store like Tandy, Radio Shack. I'm in Australia and **** Smith or Jaycar should stock these unless yours is very unusual.

You need to match the Input voltage for your country (if ordering online) and the output voltage for your device. Plus the Amps required for your device. This is normally written on both the adapter and the device.

If you are lucky you will be able to find one with the right shaped plug to fit your device. If not you will need a couple of connectors and you can use the plug off your old power supply and just join them up. Don't forget to check the polarity ( + and - ) if you get them around the wrong way you will likely break the drive. There are always small multi lingual symbols that describe which way around the + and the minus goes.

Hope this helps and Good luck

Can't access drive, drive won't start

If they are clicking it is because there is not enough power coming from the USB ports on your computer. If they don't have an external power source they will each need to be plugged into their own 2 separate USB 2.0 ports, they will not run on USB 1.0 as they won't get the power they need. Laptops tend to have more power robust USB ports than desktops. Hitachi supplies those drives with a pigtail adapter as they are power hungry. You can go down and get the external power supply for the drive and it will solve your problem as well. Or get a powered type USB hub, that has an external power adaptor that van power peripherals They will not run off an unpowered USB hub.
