Need new power supply for WD external hard drive

  Taram 13:20 05 Jan 2008

Hi one of the wires on my power supply for my Western digital external hard drive has broke. The power supply is a Ac input 100/240Vac 0.65 Max, Dc output 12vdc 2A, Model number DA-24B12. I am having problems finding a replacement, the only ones I can find are for laptops, and they are 4V upwards. I would be very grateful if someone could let me know where I could buy a replacement power adapter.

Many thanks

Mail me with your address and i will post one off to you on Monday. You can have mine for free as my hard drive has just buggered up and is of no further use to me.

I was just wondering if you got the power supply as i posted it over 2 weeks ago and you still haven't said wether you received it.
