Default lacie external usb hard drive, power connector pinout?

b Inscribed thus:

found this drive in a skip. uses a 4 pin MINI DIN connector but i have
no idea of pinouts. the drive is a LACIE PORSCHE and the only model
ref no. I can see is 1023504145065F 3U2

any ideas?

On mine (not Lacie branded but physically similar) pins 3 & 4 are ground
and case common. Pin 1 is 12v pin 2 is 5v.

Before doing anything I would check that the 12v line from the drive
actually goes to pin 1. The same goes for pin 2.
