Question about Toshiba e800 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Can the e800 USB-host feed a 500mA Harddisk?

What I want to know is this: does the usb-host deliver enough power and is anybody able to actually work with a 1.8" or 2.5" usb harddisk without a separate batterypack or charger?

Re: Can the e800 USB-host feed a 500mA Harddisk?

You may need to look up the hard drive on the manufacturers web site. They should list the spec's, including power requirements. In theory, sounds good though - anything to eliminate a power brick is good. Do you already have a hard drive you're thinking of using? If so, please post the drive model, manufacturer, etc - I can look it up at work in our files.

I left my power cord at work


A USB port supplies 5v at 1amp

If you only draw 500ma off there is a chance that the voltage will go up to 6v

Not a killer if it wants 5v but you will cook the phone if it only needs 3.7v

Some phones will only accept 3.7v (Some Nokia units)

Look at the phone battery and it will tell you what it needs

E400 usb host capable of using external hd?


As far as I know if you want to make this kind of connection I suppose that you need suitable driver for it. Sorry but there is no any known driver to me. In my opinion there are some another reasons that speaks against usage of HDD. First of all HDD need external power supply and secondly the HDD is very sensitive again agitation.

Using a host cable


I have also found out that this cable will work just with e400 and e800 models. If there is no specification that says that this cable can be used with your PDA it will be a risk to buy it.
