I have recently bought a new Toshiba Laptop after my Packard Bell laptop went US, the the high street store refunded most of my money and told me to scrap the PB after I provided an engineers report, I sold it to a repair shop after I removed the 500gb HD. I bought a SATA caddy and use it for external backups with the 500 gb HD. The cable with the caddy has USB connection How do I(if it is possible) connect the caddy USB cable to my Toshiba Sata connection? Will I need a new SATA cable for the caddy? The socket on the Toshiba is a USB and SATA dual socket. I am now using the hard drive as a storage unit and using Acronis to back up the main hard drive to it.
The Packard Bell was 13 months old and the motherboard failed.
