Default Replacement Power Adapter - WD External Drive

I was recently given a used Western Digital (P/N WDBAAJ0010HS-01) external hard drive but unfortunately it did not have the power adapter included. I tried to find a replacement through WD, but it appears they don't have the model I need available. Amazon and Newegg yielded results that were either not compatible or, shall we say, less than reputable. Anyone found a replacement for their similar device with relative ease and without splurging on a universal adapter?

That looks to be more of a serial number than the model number? All I can find tells me that it's sold in euro countries.

Instead of trying to find a replacement power adapter for that enclosure, I would simply remove the drive from that enclosure and buy a new one to put it in. Another suggestion is to buy a drive dock to use it with.

Here's a link to a page on the Newegg website listing both enclosures and docks: Hard-Drive-Enclosures/SubCategory/ID-92
