Power supply pinout? does a lacie one work?

Hi, I got a dns-323 from a friend, but he lost the power supply. I got one from a Lacie disk that gives out both 12v & 5v but i´m unsure if the pinout will match! does the original power supply tell the pinout?

Christian Drake, I attached an image that will show you the power brick and the corresponding pinout. This should answer your question. there are some great sites out there to modify your DND-323 and do not forget it's twin, Conceptronic CH3SNAS. Anyhow, check the links and you get to learn a lot about it...:-)

Christian, I was wondering if you know where I might be able to purchase the entire circuit board shown in your top link, to replace the one in my DNS-323. It has apparently died on me and I was hoping to find a replacement for it.

If not, would you know if I can simply install the drives as a Slave Drive in my Windows Desktop PC and access the files that way? Or does the DNS-323 use a file format that Windows won't recognize?

Little late but better late then ...

Be sure that the replacement adapter has 3A (not 2A) as you will burn out the 2A most probably and lucky if you are at home and awake that moment.

I accidentally ended up purchasing a 2A PSU off ebay, so did some more investigation. This page suggests it should meet the requirements of the unit sufficiently though (assuming you do in fact get a full 2A for both voltage outputs?):

Have you had 2A units burn out?
