I have an older Lacie harddrive, 80 gig if I remember right. I'd like to run it and retrieve some old pics.

It has no model numbers on it. It has two connectors on the back. One is USB for data.  I have that cord.

I don't have the other cord, which is for power. I assume it had a wall block to convert from 110, and

the plugin to the drive is circular and has a  horizontal slot near the top and two pin-holes on each side.

 

I've searched and searched and can't find it. Could anyone suggest where and how I might get one?

 

Thanks, Chuck

another option is to wire it to a molex connector and plug it into the computers power supply. if you chose this route let me know and i will help with the pinout.

sorry to waste your time; one last desperate search in yet another location, and I found the cord.

That is not a Problem at all.

 

I'm glad you were successful locating it.

 

Thank You for letting us know.
