Question about Toshiba HDDR500E04XL 500 GB USB Hard Drive
Sounds like some kind of bad wire, you hope. It could be a power issue as you have stated, I would try it out on several diffrent computers, and you were not wrong in trying the y cable. But if that still doesnt work then not all is lost. I would recomend opening up the caseing and removing the hard drive. Even external drives simply use standard laptop SATA drives. If you have a desktop you can simply plug in the drive while your computer is off, if you do not have xtra spots to plug it up you could temp unpulg your dvd drive to test it. If you have a laptop than you can buy several devices to use a sata drive though usb. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153071&cm_re=usb_sata_docking_station-_-17-153-071-_-Product
This is the one I use the most.
Good luck , if you have any questions let me know
