The part number for the adapter is K01PWR3200 but I was unable to find the voltage for it. You might like to try calling Maxtor\Seagate and asking them, as I doubt that's information they wouldn't be able to find. Also, did you try looking on the drive? A lot of the time it says it right on it. Also, I found a link where you can purchase the adapter (note: I have no association to that website):

Actual solution. The darker side panels pop off and they alone hold things together. Simply pry each side away at rear. That would be end with power and USB connections are.

Have you checked that your External HD get enough power?
My Maxtor Onetouch 4 mini came with a cable with two USB plugs. It works fine with one plug in my Macbook, but requires both two to work in older PowerBook G4.
This is probably because older Mac is not feeding enough amps to USB output.
Or then there is something else wrong.

I had similar problem. See FAQs on this site. My 300 GB One Touch II drive was not found in the XP machine either as USB or IEEE. When I remounted the drive in an external cabinet from Deltaco ( MAP-KC) is is running since. The Maxtor chassi was the trouble not the 3,5 " drive. All data is recovered. // Regards AH2FOTO

it may be like the one i have which is a maxtor basics 1.5tb drive. There is only one screw behind the sticker. The rest is clips. This is the guide i used when opening the case.

A USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive.
The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive.
Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data.
If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.
Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely.
Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7).
The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer.
If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step.
Ensure that the data cable is working properly.
Try another USB cable if you have one available.
Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive.
Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized.
Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected.
If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port.
If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem.
Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager."
For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter."
Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives."
If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears.
The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly.
If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced.
Hope this helps
