The specs seem to be very similar to the OEM adaptor, but why are you using a Plextor adaptor with a Seagate unit?

Did the external drive work with the original power supply?

Presuming the polarity is the same, the specs are similar (12V at 2.0A). Most replacement Personel Storage 3100 OEM PSU replacement are 3.0A, but a few sites also sell a 2.0A unit; therefore I'll presume that 2.0A is enough.

Did it work fine with the original PSU?

As you can see, the Plextor PSU meets the requirements. Did that external drive work before or is it a unit that you got for free and hope to get working?
