    The voltage to you hard drive is DC and the amperage supplied must be on demand. So do not use anything other than the supply power pack.

    If you don't have a drive ready light and any activity light you do need to return this for replacement or warranty service.

    There is no user serviceable parts.

    Tell me who made your external drive and I'll supply you with a phone number.

    Regards,

Try a different Adapter for the HD. if it don't work then, the HD is bad.

try another socket on the board. if not working then. you can get a 3 pin to 4 pin fan adapter to power the fan from the power supply. if still no spinning, the fan is dead.

What is the proper power supply for a seagate 9zc2a8-500

I need the owners manual, I bought it some time ago but I have lost the manual, if there was one.


Don't think i've ever sen a manual for a Hard Drive. There really isn't much you can put in the manual.
The actual Hard Drive inside is bought from a drive manufacturer like Seagate or Western Digital. Then the drive is placed in a case made by an OEM. The case can have a built in Power Supply where you plug an AC cord directly in the Back or a Low Voltage DC Plug Pack can be used. The Interface Ports can be USB 2, USB 3 or FireWire for example.
Never move or jarr the drive or drop it while running.
If you want the specs on the Drive itself then open the case and find the Brand of the drive and Model and look it up.
That should give you the capacity & speed and access time etc.

Hope this Helps

HOW MANY AMP NEED A POWER SUPLY FOR A VERBATIM SNS2TB ?


Hi Jorge
Internally a standard 3.5" Hard Drive uses two voltages
about .7A on the 5v Line
and .55A on the 12v line.
So an External AC Plug Pack supplying 12v @ 1.5 to 2Amp should be adequate.
Be careful to match the polarity as marked on the back of your drive and use the correct thickness of the centre pin. There are 2-3 different sizes of this connector available at electronics component suppliers in case you make your own supply up.
Good Luck
Trevor

Looking for new driver, need to download, can not access main partition


Probably not a driver issue - likely the DM 5127 power supply has failed. They fail in a way that lights the lights and may or may not spin the drive. If you have a voltmeter, see if there is any AC voltage on the 12V and 5V rails. If the AC voltage is not zero, the power supply is failed. Fastest fix is to move drive into a new PATA/IDE enclosure.

In general, you need to install the correct drivers for the enclosure, not for the hard disk. Seeing as you have XP Pro, this is probably unnecessary though.

Also, 0.7A is 700 mA, and this exceeds the USB port maximum current which is 500 mA.

Most (not all!) laptop drives will run even if under a slight undercurrent, but this depends on USB port electronics and enclosure electronics.

Chances are that you won't be able to run the disk unless you plug it into an externally powered USB hub supplying at least 750 mA per port. The 100-500 mA supplied by your PC's USB port is enough to power the enclosure electronics and the host controller, but not enough to get the HD to spin properly. As a result, the HD can not be initialised and the enclosure will report an error.

Some hard disk enclosures come with a "USB Y Cable" or "double power cable" which joins two USB ports to get double the current, and can support HD up to 1.0A. If your enclosure comes with one of them, try that first.

Power cord buzzes and MACPro does not recognize it


This is a fault in the power supply itself, I have just repaired one of these power supplies successfully.
The fault is caused by the failure of the filter capacitors on the 12V supply rail, and if the power supply is left connected to the mains supply (In our case 240V 50Hz) without the drive connected as a load, the unloaded output voltage will exceed the voltage rating of the capacitors, causing their failure. The failed capacitors had very obvious bulges at the top, and one was beginning to leak onto the PCB.

The filter capacitors on the 12V supply rail are rated at 16V, and the cpacitors on the 5V rail are rated at 10V, and when operated without a load, the 12V rail rises to approximately 19V, and the 5V rail rises to approximately 8V. All output filter capacitors are 1000uF, and 105deg C temperature rated.

I repaired my power supply by replacing all of the filter capacitors on the DC low voltage output rails with 1000uF 25V capacitors. Be careful to only fit the 105 deg C rated caps, as they operate at elevated temperatures in an enclosed environment with no ventillation to cool the power supply.
To ensure that the repair was reliable, I also replaced the filter capacitor on the 5V rail with the same 1000uF 25V, even though that capacitor showed no immediate signs of failure.

When reassembling the power supply, care must be taken to ensure that parts like the ferrite cored transformer are thermally bonded to the aluminium heatsink with a smear of heatsink compound.
When the power supply was first powered up following repair, everything was normal, the green power LED came on as usual, the supply outputs both came up OK, and the unit was not making any buzzing sounds, completely silent. The HDD now operated as normal when once again powered from this power supply.

This was the fix for my particular LaCie power supply model ACU057A-0512, and the supply once again works normally.

Shorted 12V on input to drive


Hi,

Basically 2 options I think.
1. If you feel comfortable working with electronics, familiar with a DVM (looks like) and a soldering iron, it possible to check the electronic board of the HD. You need to do component level check of that PCB. Some of these old HDs have a reverse protection diode installed right after the power connector. At times it could be the surface mounted capacitor. The worst is the servo drive that powers the motor. Normally, the 12V in an HD is for use of the motor while the 5V is for the logic circuitry.

2. If you need to replace the HD, just about any hard drive should work for your PIII (just not the new big ones). Sources would be your neighborhood computer repair shops or a neighbor/friend who's got a defective PC and would probably just throw them away rather than have them repaired. You can salvaged the parts and hopefully a working HD. Most also would already have Win98SE and transition from one system to another in 98 would not be that much of a hassle. You can then use your original Windows key.

3. Should you get one that has no OS, you can use an OEM Windows installer and still use you original CD key.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
