Hi, Hopefully someone will be able to point me in the right direction. I'm looking for a power supply for a fairly old Western Digital external hard drive. Model number WD1600B012 RNU. Cheers.

Though you say its a round plug. at the end of the day it as two wire that carry 5 volts dc down it why not buy one then change the plug by leaving about two inches of wire on old plug then solder to end of cut of wires on new adapter no forgetting polarity as in my last post pos to middle pin
