I have an external hard drive with a power supply as follows:
Input 100-240 vac, mac amps = 0.5
Output 12vdc, max amps = 1.5

That power supply has now failed, but I have another one with the following specs:
Input 100-240 vac, max amps = 0.65
Output 12vdc, max amps = 2

The adapters are the same and the little grounding diagrams match on both. Would there be any problem using the one with slightly higher amp ratings with my hard drive?

Thanks
