Hi, my dog ate the original power cable that came with Touro Desk 2TB (external HD). I had to buy another power cable, but this time was a generic. The external HD is turning on fine, but iMac is not detecting it. I hope it's because of the new power cable. I only can see some of the external HD information on System Information:

 

 

Touro Desk 3.0:

 

  Product ID:          0x1015

  Vendor ID:          0x4971

  Version:           0.00

  Serial Number:          31001206210000000000

  Speed:          Up to 480 Mb/sec

  Manufacturer:          HitachiGST

  Location ID:          0xfa130000 / 6

  Current Available (mA):          500

  Current Required (mA):          8

 

 

Is current available and required mA confirming my thoughts? Please help! My life depends on this. Thanks in advance!!
