It may be cheaper to take the drive out and buy a new external enclosure or caddy.
A replacement power supply from amazon is $25 http://www.amazon.com/Adapter-External-Essential-Expander-Compatible/dp/B003GMJ334

A caddy to fit the drive in can cost from $5, it depends if you want to use the extra functions the current enclosure offers

My book essential edition - 500Gb. Model no. WD5000H1U-00 It would appear that the power supply adaptor is not working since there is no power when plugged in. It is still in warranty, any advice on how...


> it is still in warranty

If you exercise the warranty, you'll have to send the current device back to W.D.
But, W.D. will take _no_ responsibility for 'rescuing' the files currently on the disk.
Is that what you want?

Disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer.
If it works, the disk-drive is OK.
So, look at: http://www.canadaram.com/3_5_sata_enclosures.htm
and buy a new enclosure, with a new power-supply.
(Or, buy the new enclosure locally, at any computer-store.)
Disassemble your current unit, remove the disk-drive,
and transplant the disk-drive into the new enclosure.

Bad Power Supply for WD5000E035-00 Tried to power up last night and no lights on power supply, HD won't turn on (no lights).


I am also looking for a solution to this exact same problem. I have been advised to look at Newegg for a Rosewill SATA case with power. I have seen External Hard Drive Enclosures there but no mention of whether power is included unless that is what SATA means. Was also advised that $20 is a reasonable price plus shipping cost. I don't know if the WD5000E035-00 will fit in this enclosure. Tom W.

Help on WD5000H1U-00


Are you sure the power supply is OK for this drive?

Does it make any clicking/clunking sounds like any of these: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php?
If yes - it's really bad.
If it sounds normal then try to remove it from enclosure and connect directly to a PC.
