I have an external Seagate Barracuda LP ST2000DL003 which I am using with a Windows 10 Laptop

I am green with hardware

The power-cord broke, and I may have overvolted it's enclosures with the wrong power adapter before I got the right one.

I have removed the enclosure & attatched photos of the enclosure + added pics of each side of the seagate HDD PCB

Is there a good exsternal USB adapter that I could directly plug the HDD into mylaptop instead of removing any potentially 12V TVS protection diode ?

Enclosure

Many thanks in advance
 
The same adapter also can be used for a DVD drive, but if you use it on a DVD you'll need a 3A adapter.

HDDs usually use no more than 2A but I have an SATA DVD drive that requires 2.5A.

But it's not a big problem because you can use any 12V adapter having the same connector size and polarity when needed.
