Question about SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 500GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Onyx

2 Answers

I lost my power adapter for my Simpletech Pininfarina 500GB external hard drive. On the back it says: BOM No. 96300-41001-013 What do I need to look for in a transformer? One person said 12V 2amp c

This is an older unit, rather large at 8"x5", and on the back is written: BOM NO. 96300-41001-013 One person said to use a power supply that is 12V 2amps with positive center pin. But I would like someone to confirm this before I try something that could destroy all my data!

It's pretty pathetic that companies like Pininfarina/Simpletech don't print what adapters are needed for their devices. Just pathetic. They put the burden on the consumers to do it for them.
