As long as the LED on it is blinking, it shows that the thing is still alive, and maybe just not getting enough power.

I have the exact same Toshiba 160gig mini HDD and it works just fine. Does the data cable on it have 2 usd connectors? If so you should try plugging them both into the machine.

Also sometimes it doesn't work on usb hubs at the front in most pcs. Try plugging it at the back hubs (those at the back of the case).
