    Trying to find a place to buy a couple of the USB portable hard drive cables that have the power and power/data connector on one end and the usb mini on the other.... Anyone know a source?

    Thanks in advance

    So it's a y-shaped cable? Is it brand specific??

    Yes, it is Y-shaped. No, it is not brand specific. Actually, some portable hard drives come with one. I found a case in a local store that comes with one for $24. I just don't need an empty HD case and am reluctant to pay that much just to get the cable.

    Yes, although I was hoping to find one short like the ones that come with some portable drives. I may just have to suck it up and buy a portable enclosure to get what I want.

    Later on, I was able to find a cable that is only a meter lond as opposed to six feet. Still wish I could find the shorter ones that they sell with some hard drive and cases.
