Replacement power supply and a couple of other questions

Where can I get a replacement UK power supply for my MyBook (WD3200|032) and is it a standard one?

Can anyone recommend an inexpensive but reliable (v important) WD replacement for the Seagate drive I foolishly bought that didn’t last 8 months and do they have any tips on how to make a drive last longer / take care of it?




For a certified power adapter replacement you need to contact WD directly.

In regards to the drive, exactly what type of drive you are looking for?

You don’t know if it’s possible to order a power supply online by any chance do you?

One of the reasons I think the Seagate one packed in so quickly is because I had it plugged in permanently but one of my friends has said that it’s best not to do this, so I just need a small external that’s as reliable as possible - it doesn’t need to be large as I don’t have that much data - reliability is the main thing.



I only turn mine on when I use them. I’ve got a My Book Pro II that that a functional power switch. The power switches on the other two sadly only work with Smartware which I didn’t install. I plugged those into a separate powere strip to make it easier to turn on and off. I leave the USB cables plugged in.
