The main thing that you should worry about is the Volts. so since you have 12V you can use any one of them. the 3A will be better as it has a better Amps. good luck

WD 500 My Book Prem Ed will not power up


If it's less than a year old, call WD and get a replacement power brick and see if that works.

You could of course also buy a replacement and see if that works.

If the unit is not powering up, the HD inside is almost certainly good. Data recovery is trivial. All you have to do is open the case(hard part) and remove the hard drive. Find a desktop you can install it into and copy the data to a new external HD. If you don't have a a desktop available, you can buy a USB to SATA adapter with a power adapter for about $15-20 that will work well. If you're creative you could probably re-install one of these kits into the existing enclosure for a permanent fix.
