Google has a page and a half for the first half of the number
Not much use, foreign or 'for sale'

If its a 3.5 inch drive he will definitly need 12v input from an 
external source.
If its a 2.5 its probably 5v and may or may not run off USB depending on 
how much power it needs.

As the OP says it works on one system and not another - it probably is 
due to power requirements - usb 2 supplies a
higher power output.
