Elements by WD, AC Adapter Failed


There are replacement models for this 5V/1.5A power supply that the AD6008 uses.

One of them is made by a company called "Asian Power Devices" [APD] and their model number for the replacement for this particular unit is: DA-30C01.

I've seen them for sale on www.amazon.com for around $25.00.

My WD external HD "element" will not turn on


When you say it won't turn on, do you mean, there is no spin-up and not LED. If this is the case disconnect it from the power source and then reconnect it. If the LED flashes once or doesn't appear at all, the power supply is faulty and you will need a replacement. If you call WD, they will send you a replacement power supply free of charge.

WD External Hard drive does not work no power to it


External drives tend to use power supplies at 12V DC and 1 amp or just a little bit over. You could read the output of the power supply with a digital volt meter. If you have power and the enclosure still refuses to turn on, you could buy another enclosure, another power supply, or just a naked USB to IDE adapter and pull the drive out of the existing enclosure.

Chances are, the drive you get out of the housing will never be going back into that case.

My usb ports are limited to 500mA each one and the WD external HD needs at least 1000mA. How can I solve that?


You might need to install a new USB card, one with 1000 mA, to provide the power necesary for your WD external drive. Check the WD manual to see whether there is a way to use two USB ports when jumpering them to see if you can provide the power yourself.
Also check the WD web site.
