    Actually, the Toshiba is available at $129. I know, I just bought one and I love it. And so does my Acer Aspire One.

    I bought one of the 320GB Toshiba drives a few months ago for $130 from Office Depot (or Max? one of the two). It's served me well and works like a champ. And I have to say, the convenience of not needing a power cable far outweighs (in my mind) the higher read speed of drives that do need a power cable.

    I formatted my Toshiba hard drive like a moron and lost this installation file. Does anyone know where I can get it back? Any help will be appreciated!

    I believe the drivers can be downloaded from the Toshiba site itself.

    Alternatively, if all else fails, you can also search Google for your installation file name, i'm sure it will be around.

    I have a Toshibe 320 GB external hard drive and the cable went bad, I need to replace it. I see the image of the cable on your web site. Please let me know if I can purchase it from you and the price. Thank you. Nadia
