My usb cable for my My Book harddrive was chewed up and I was wondering if the charger cable for a playstation 3 sixaxis controller would work. I don’t know the pin patterns an what not but they look like they are the same. I just don’t want to plug it in and something frying lol. Thanks

  1. You would have to check the specs of both the cables. Here is a paragraph from a online laptop charger site (applies to all chargers):

    Will This Charger Work For My Laptop?

    The following three condition should be met for you to use this charger safely. You can contact us here if you need further assistance.

    1) Output Voltage is within +/- 5% of your old charger’s output.

    For example, if your old charger provides 19.5V, then you can use a charger that provides 20.5V or 18.5V.

    2) Output Current is the same or higher than that of your old charger.

    For example, if your original adapter provides 3.42 Amps, then you can use a charger that provides 3.42 Amps, 3.9 Amps or higher.

    3) Connector tip must fit securely into your laptop.

    Just take a look at that and determine it from there.

    Best of luck.

  2. Why don’t you try it and you may find the answer yourself, no offense but this question is kinda silly.
