If you look on both power supplies, there should be small image icons of the plugs, and they should show what voltage is on which plug contact. If the two are different, you may have damaged the enclosure - and hopefully only the enclosure.

So what next? It seems to be a sealed unit

I suspect it snaps together and you need 3 hands and a strategically placed tongue to pry open the case to access the actual drive. The drive "should" be a standard PC or notebook drive.

Note when reading the power supply specifications, it is not just the voltage ("18") that matters, it is the type voltage, AC or DC, and if DC, the polarity on the center pin, positive or negative. So typically a power supply will specify the output something like +12VDC, or 17VAC. They usually specify a current value in milliamperes too.
