Obtaining data from old WD MyBook

Continuing the discussion from I need a printer cable?:

I got the cable from Judy, but the AC adapter I have isn’t power enough to get the drive to spin up. Fortunately I found (Missing power cord - External Drives for PC - WD Community) a link to a weird customer help page I’ve backed up to Power Adapters for WD Products.

My Book Essential (Green Ring)
12 Volts
2.0 Amps
24 Watts

I might have an adapter powerful enough, but Oakland folks check as well, if you don’t mind. I’ll take a photo of the port later. :slight_smile:


Good luck on your search, my friend.
