my vantec nexstar hard drive enclosure (NST-350) power supply died so i cut the cord and attached a molex connecter so that i could plug it in to my computers power supply.

wiring from nexstar is white = +12v
green = +5v
black = ground
bare wire = ground

molex wiring is yellow = +12v
red = +5v
black = ground
black = ground

hope this helps someone else

also found WD external drive pin out. There are 3 wires on the WD cable:
1 with a solid white stripe (+12)
1 with a dashed white stripe (+5v)
1 solid black ( ground )

Isn't the power supply a simple 2-wire block?
What is the voltage and milliamp out rating?
