Go to radioshack or any like store and take your MyBook with you.
It needs a 12 volt adapter and they have the proper fitting for you. Or you can go on ebay for it.

WHAT IS THE INPUT VOLTAGE AND AMPS OF A 500 GB WD EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE. I LOST MY ADAPTER


You can normally buy a replacement adapter from Western Digital from this link, but they are out of stock at the moment.

As an alternative place to purchase this, it looks like you can buy it on Amazon.com

Western digital 160 GB My Book power supply ac adapter what is + and what is - on output plug to unit 12 vdc and inner is + or 1? and what is the current rating ?


The way to read and find out is look at the drive where it shows the voltage it will look like - (c + the way to read those is the (c is the direction of the tip so if it's - (c +, the positive voltage is the inner portion and the ground is the outside conversely, if it's + (c -, it's ground inside, voltage out.
Also, usually electric drives run on 1.5 amps- way to see is look on the drive or the ac adapter itself.

The adapter to my Western Digital Book does not respond


The monitor requires a adapter with a current output of 4 amps. but the Western Digital Book adapter can only supply 2 amps (half the current required by the monitor).
This means using the WD adapter on the monitor will stress this adapter beyond its capacity and continual use of this adapter on the monitor will cause it to fail and/or switch off if it has overload protection.
If you are having problems with the 2 amp adapter on the WD Book, then the power adapter could be faulty or it maybe OK when the adapter cools down.
I suggest you get a 12 volt 4 or more amps adapter for the monitor.
You may need an adapter for the WB book too if the adapter is faulty.

I lost my power cord for my western digital notebook. Does anyone know where I can get a new one?


Best bet is to buy a used one on eBay, but barring that you can simply have your local computer shop transfer the WD harddrive into a new shell with a new power adapter for less money in most cases.
