I have the same drive and it uses an Accurian AC/DC Adapter. It's output is 6.3V. Also the model number is XKD-C1500NHS66.3-12. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: I applied the wrong ac adaptor to my external hardrive

Hello,

My laptop adapter delivers 4A (ampères). Examine the HD adapter, and read all markings, looking for output intensity ( a number followed by a capital A). Do the same with you computer's adapter.
If output intensity delivered by the computer adapter is higher than the output intensity of the HD adapter, chances are you have blown out a fuse inside the HD enclosure (if you have a fuse)

In addition to voltage, intensity, there is the question of polarity of the adapter (positive inside ---C+ or positive outside ---+C. You can verify compatibilties of the adapters by comparing the C with a dot on both adapters.

Hope it helps sort things out a bit.

SOURCE: I need to replace the dura micro dm5133u ac

Now, if you can't find an external hard drive adapter for your drive, can I ask you is it for a laptop or desktop.

If it is for a desktop, you can actually open the drive casing and take out the internal hard drive and plug it into your computer.

Dear Sir/ Madam, I have TWO Western Digital USB


first of all , you are looking at the wrong voltages. The important voltage is the DC OUTPUT, which is the voltage the external harddrives use AND the polarity of the plug attached to the harddrive end of the cable.
if both the harddrives have say 12v dc output and both have the insignia of the center conductor being + (posative) then you can interchange them. and you CAN run a 9volt unit with 12volt DC power, but not the other way around.
Look at your power adaptors again for the OUTPUT and polarity.
should be a half-circle with lines depicting the polarity(+,-) of the center and sheild connections to the hard drives printed on both the harddrives and the power adaptors . This can also be tested with a dc volt meter while the adaptors are plugged into the wall.
DO NOT try to test the AC end while plugged in!!
Regards
