Have you had any success yet? Mine still isn't working, and Toshiba support isn't interested because it's out of warranty. Although this problem happened shortly after the BIOS password defect locked up my computer, which Toshiba did fix.

New hard drives need to be formatted! So go into the control panel switch to classic view, ( if you are still using category view for the control panel ) open administrative tools, then open computer management. Next open disk management. In disk management your new drive will show as raw, you will be give the option of formatting the drive, select primary partition and format in NTFS.
This will then format the drive, when this has finished your new drive will appear in my computer.
be careful using hubs with this model mine didnt like them,if yours is the model with sd card reader in the side try sloting a card in if it dosent pick that up then you will have to load windows on again problem with usb internal settings,if this is the problem it picks up the device but you cant access it.
I would go back to device manager and uninstall all drivers in the USB category. Reboot and Windows will re-detect all the USB ports, this should work. If it was an electronic problem then some ports would work and other wouldn't but not all since there is multiple USB controllers in most computers these days.
