    Hi,

    I have Maxtor one-touch backup drive which has a '2 into 1' usb cable. I have damaged this and wondered whether anyone knows if they can purchased separately. I live in the UK. Many thanks,

    I'm not clear on what you mean by a 2 into 1 usb cable. If you are looking for a cable that has 2 plugs that plug into USB ports and a single plug that plugs into the device, do a Google search for USB "splitters".

    Many thanks for the response - thats exactly what I'm looking for however, as yet, after about 30 websites, I still haven't found one. I wonder if it's a Maxtor proprietry part. Its 2 x USB (one power and one data/power) and 1 x USB mini. Still looking, any idea's?
