If it's the power adapter then a simple search of the internet should show you where to go to find one. The other problem is that the HDD may be bad. You'd have to open the case, remove the HDD then connect it to your computer. I'm sure this would void the warrenty. However if it is the HDD then you saved yourselp the cost of a power supply.

Blinking white amber light above power cord


The power supply is the issue, or the DC jack in the laptop has developed bad connections, or ram issue. Remove 1 stick of ram and power on, if no! remove second one, and replace the first, power up, if no! test the power supply for proper voltage, if okay! it is a DC jack or motherboard problem.

Windows vista cannot detect my wd 320gb element external harddisk


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

Note that W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- you can buy a new W.D. device, through the W.D. web-site, at a significant discount.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

Power loss in external harddrive


Hi mjcole,
Couple things. What model WD drive do you have? Plugging the laptop adapter into the drive chassis may have fried the chassis. You can buy a new chassis and put your drive into it, or you can buy a new power supply in case the one you have has gone bad and you did not realize it. Not likely though.

The power requirements are very specific and the laptop power supply may have been to much for the WD drive.

Need a replacement power supply for WD elements 1TB drive


If the power supply is external, meaning in a separate box other than the drive itself, just look at the voltage rating and current ratings (printed on the power adapter). It must not go below the current rating. Say, if it is rated at 2A then a 3A or greater will work too as long as the voltage is the same. Any switching power supply will work with the correct DC output plug. Caution: watch out for the plug's polarity orientation.

WD Mybook I TB hard drive won't power up


It could be the power adapter but you'll need to verify that the wall outlet or power strip you have it plugged into actually has power. If it's a power strip make sure that it is turned on and has power and also plug the adapter into a different outlet on the strip as individual outlets can go bad or have a bad connection.

Not charging when the charger cord is in


You either have bad power transformer or a bad opwer receptacle on the laptop.

You can test the power supply with a multimeter. If it gets the correct voltage, your receptacle on the laptop is broken. Repair requires replacement of the motherboard, and probably will not be cost effective.
