You will want a 12v 2A DC adapter and you will need to get the end fitted (RadioShack can do this for you).

Where I went they only had a 1.5A adapter and it does work, but it sometimes "clicks" a few times before starting up. It's probably bad for the drive so I highly recommend getting a 2A adapter if you can.

I need the base adapter for my 3.0 go flex

If you are mentioning the mains power adapter the only source is the manufacture, if they will sell one.

Another solution is to visit an electronics part supplier and see if you can find a universal power supply unit that will operate the drive. These universal supplies are not very expensive.

My external hard drive fails to spin

The hard drive needs a proper regulated power adapter for the hard drive to work.
If the hard drive is a 5.25 inch drive it requires 12 volts and 5 volts power supply.
If the hard drive is a 3.5 inch drive it requires a 5 volt power supply.

It sounds like the controller for the drive is shot. You will probably need a new enclosure as long as the drive itself is OK that should do it. What is probably happening is that the controller in the enclosure is broken and trying to pull too much power.

Hey buddy, my power cord thing has broken l was wondering if could get another 1 from this website? thanks brayden

Be careful-you can usually get an universal dc adapter from radioshack or your local electronics/bigbox retailer. Match the voltage and amperage listed on the drive- that way you won't fry your hard drive

Power plug it broken

Hi there,

The WD500gb external storage requires a specific adapter supplied by WD itself. You can have it fixed on the nearest electrical service center for your convenience or you could buy an adapter with the same rating (same polarity as well) so you could use your drive.

I'd still recommend purchasing the original drive either from ebay or WD site:

Hope this helps,

The 5v power pin on the AC adapter of my SmartDisk Crossfire external hard drive has been broken. How do I get a replacement AC Adapter?

Take your SmartDisk to any computer-store.

They can open the case, remove the disk-drive,
and mount the disk-drive in a new "empty" external casing,
with a new power-supply.
for a sample of various "empty" cases, for about $30.
