Need new connector for Lacie External Drive
In a recent move I have misplaced (lost) some USB connectors for a couple of external hard drives.
I need to pick up 3 new connector thingies.

Can't remember when I bought these.
2014?
2015?
Not sure...but want some files on them


All it says on the sides of the drive, besides the brand name of LACIE are AR25U32

Anyone here familiar with the drive or know which connector i would need to buy here?








I see an ad for this drive elsewhere, with photos. I think, not positive that it could be the one that matches the picture for the USB 3.0 Micro B Male but not sure...

That would be the one. You can get away with a regular A-to-MicroB cable in a pinch, but it will only operate at USB 2.0 speeds.

Thank you, all of you.

I will pick up them up today to see if they all work.

I could be wrong but it's possible these drives are a bit older, maybe even 2013 or 2014, if that makes any difference.
I had those ones all assigned to a MBP circa 2012.

I preferred the model below that had the thing attached but all old drives now so I may just recover the files and move on...

Thanks!!!

FWIW I have not had luck with cables from FT.

I got one similar, SKU 1021301 , and it was bunk.

I threw one on an order that should arrive any day now.

I dont have great expectations but figured, at worst, I would have one and if it at least fit, I'd know what I was looking for in one of a dozen stores around me that will have brand name cords.

No rush. Still sitting on an unopened 250GB extreme portable external SSD Sandisk drive that needs to be installed onto one computer thats been down for 2 months.


Thanks Stef and John but you are a bit late to troll this thread.
No more use for it.

Cheers! 😁

Fit wasn't great on mine, but maybe you'll have better luck. Also, it was wobbly and couldn't keep a connection.
