My Book AC adapter doesn't fit. Cannot plug into back of HDD

Hey everyone,

I think I have a unique issue. I recently bought a mybook 6 TB HDD and the ac adapter female end will not fit into the back of the HDD. I’ve pushed very hard but it will simply not plug in. Is it possible to replace the ac adapter or request a new one?

Exact same problem. Any info on resolving would be warmly received.

I sent my back to the ebay seller. Complete BS that they cannot pack the correct adapter.


Wow - uncool. At least I wasn’t imagining things… Thanks!

Hey; I’m having the same issue. Matched up my hard drive part number before I bought it. AC adapter doesn’t fit. Help!
