Question about Toshiba 200GB USB 2.0 Portable External 200 GB Hard Drive
Well, a solution of sorts.
I had the same problem with a Maxtor 500g.
Eventually what I did was crack open the case to discover the HD is a SATA with a small circuit board that converts it to USB. I got rid of the circuit board and just plugged it into my system. Have not had a problem since.
I know this is not solving your problem but if the unit is dead and you cannot exchange it for a new one, you could at least get some use out of it.
Obviously I can't guarantee that what is inside your toshiba is the same as what was inside my maxtor.
