I have an external hard drive much like this


A Seagate Desktop

However, the 12v transformer has packed in which essentially leaves me with a big paperweight. Does anyone know where I can purchase a replacement transformer for this hard drive as I can't find one despite various hours (or minutes) of googling?

Ah well might be time to consign it to the scrap heap.

You can buy variable voltage transformers in Maplins - bring the old one along and I'm sure someone will help you ou.  Alternatively, take out the drive and place it in another caddy - cheaper than buying a new one!

I have that hard drive but the heads got screwed up on it so obviously dont use it anymore. I think the rest of it is fine so if you dont find the part you're looking for elsewhere let us know and I'll send it on to you and you can take it apart.
