Hello, for a couple of seconds I plugged in the wrong a/c adapter to my external hard drive. I unplugged immediately when I smelled plastic. I plugged in the right adapter and still smell plastic. I immediately unplugged. Is the hard drive ruined?

At least the power circuitry in the enclosure! Possibly the drive itself, open it up and see what you find something melted!
