Need power adapter for external hard drive (looks like s-video connection)

my external hard drive seems to be playing up on me, the power block isn't showing the green on light so i suspect it's only the power adapter/block itself which needs replacing

the power adapter has an unsual end, looks kinda like a s-video connection can anyone confirm what type it is, so i can get a replacement ordered.

edit: added pics

It's a DIN type plug. Your best bet may be to pop into a local Maplin and check out their range of plugs.

Hope this is of some use to you.

it's a WD elements 1TB (got from tesco last year)

On the base of the power pack is usually a pin out diagram if you can post a copy of that I have a few spare power supplies from external HD's as I copped for some "cheap" to use as internals.

If I have one that matches I will send you for cost of postage.

I meant on the power bricks label lol:-D

But from that I know all mine have the rectangular part in the centre running 90 degrees to what yours does, there are three connection types in these 12v 5v and ground, so be careful if you do get hold of one that they equate to each other.

Yes, that's definitely a DIN type socket/plug configuration. Maplin are your guys.
