Hi and thanks in advance. Well my question is actually in the the title, can you buy External Hard Drives with more than 1 USB port. Reason being as i want to hook it up to my PC and also my WD TV live box and i do not want to keep having to unplug all the time. Have looked about but i can only seem to find them with one USB port. If you can not buy them, then will a USB Y cable spliter do the job or will they not for that. Many thanks and kind regards. Cliffy.

Very simple solution to your problem,go to Amazon and get yourself a USB multi hub,make sure it's mains powered though as the current drawn via USB devices needs the extra juice to power your devices,i use a connectland 3401171 7 port multi hub £19 free delivery,does what it says on the tin and i'm 100% satisfied.
