Where can I find a new Maxtor One Touch 4 Power Adapter?

I need to order a replacement power adapter or a Maxtor One Touch 4 500 GB, but I don't have access to the actual power adapter, the client misplaced it and I need to have a new one before going on-site.  Does anyone know where I can order a replacement that will match?

Thanks!

If it helps, the Part Number is 9NT2A4-500 for the hard drive, not sure on the adpater though as it is lost.

Any similar AC -> 12v DC adapter with supplies at least 3 amps and has the right connector will work.

Thanks, I saw that E-bay listing but was not sure if there was a more "official" place to order it from.  I'll go with the E-bay one.  I figured any similiar 12v adapter would work, but I didn't know if buying the wrong one could short it out and since this is for a client's backup drive, I wanted to be sure!

PCBonez is 100% correct that any 12V DC - ~3A  power supply will work. The only issue you'll run into is finding the right type of connector that plugs into your laptop. There are probably ~20 or so connectors that may look like they would work, but have different size diameters and inner diameters. I couln't find anywhere that specified what type it is. Maybe you could call Maxtor and ask. Then you could buy any generic one that had the correct connector.

Other than this is not a laptop but an external hard drive, tplaya07 is correct.
There are maybe 20 different connectors but the vast majority use one of about 4 universal common types and the Maxtor sticks to the common ones.

Center will be + , and outer ring will be - .
DC Plug dimensions will probably be either:
2.1mm I.D. x 5.5mm O.D
2.5mm I.D. x 5.5mm O.D

There are adapters between sizes if you end up needing one.

I have an older Maxtor External drive [not OneTouch capable] that uses 2.1mm I.D. x 5.5mm O.D..

Well I ordered that E-bay A/C adapter that claimed it was a "Maxtor OneTouch 4 Power Adapter" so I can only hope they are right!

Thanks, points split up!  My only fear was using the wrong charger might short out the drive or something.  I guess as long as it powers up, it's good?  Thanks!
