How can I get a replacement power supply?


What you are after is an AC adapter this model I found on ebay has 120 volts to 240 volts to 12 volts make sure the DC voltage output matches the Voltage of your hard drive. The current output has to be the same amount or larger in value. So if your drive needs 2A a 2A or larger value means it can handle the current load put on it by the Hard drive.

Need to know what AC adapter to use with my Firelite. Have a number of AC adapters but not sure which one goes with my unit


First ..this is an usb disk ..and usually it does not need an external power supply but in special cases when it is plugged in something it can not sustain it ..i understood it does have a power supply plug ..but ..I repeat ..it should work on the usb alone ..and get the power from it ..
If you experience some issues and need to know if ti will work when you power it external ..the values are written on the back of teh drive ..or near the plug ..You will only need to have the right jack ..and the voltage to match ..beware of any higher voltage ..it may damage it right the way ..

I have a Maxtor external driver and the AC adapter is not working. I need a new AC adapter and local stores do not have it. How can you help?


There are "generic" power supplies that might meet your needs.

This is a response I gave to another user who had a different external HDD and needed a power supply.

The hard drive unit itself should be able to supply you with the required DC input voltage (hopefully there is some kind of label on the enclosure).

You could try one of these or something similar. It comes with 6 interchangeable heads and has adjustable DC voltage. This is just one of many available.

http://www.amazon.com/Hosa-ACD477-100-240V-Voltage-Adaptor/dp/B000Z31G3M

I cannot guarantee any of these supplied heads will fit your particular drive (same with the dc voltage). Some local retailers
often have these types of adapters and you might be able to determine what size you need by looking at one. Most of the

Externall HDD need 12VDC and 18+ watts of power.

Here is an online site also.

www.12Vadapters.com

I have used DC units similar to these in the past when I have lost a power supply.

Hopefully with a minimum of effort you can get a working solution.

What kind of external power supply does it need if


Portable HDDs normally have a dual cable USB with the thicker cable being the power and data and the thinner one power only. Many manufacturers now make PSUs with USB sockets
