About this item

The Startech 1' USB-A to Mini-B Y-Cable provides two USB 'A' Male connectors and a single USB 'mini-B' Male connector - an ideal solution for providing the additional power required by some mini-USB External Hard Drives connected to the standard USB ports provided by most computers. Especially valuable in situations where a single USB 2.0 port may not offer sufficient power to external hard drives, the USB A/Mini-B Y-cable can be connected to two ports on one PC to increase the power output to power the external device. Aside from the additional power provided, this 1' cable also offers high speed error-free data transfer.

Startech 1' USB Y Cable for External Hard Drive:

  • Provides both USB data and USB device power through a single cable
  • Eliminates the use of a power adapter
  • Data Transfer Rate: up to 480Mbps
  • Dual USB 'A' (male) host connectors
  • Compliant with USB 2.0 wire specifications

When our Granddaughter lost her original cable to her DVD for her netbook we replaced it with this...Worked great and not as cumbersome as the one that came with the Acer DVD...Connecting wires are slimmer and are a great replacement...NP here!

Customer review by RockOlife

It is not unusual for a DVD player to require more power than one output jack can provide, so typically this style of Y Cable comes with a player... Problem is, we lose them. The Startech cable is reasonably priced and works great. Some brands have a red wire for the added USB cable. Startech uses a red jack. That is more attractive than the red cable, although that is no big deal. The jacks fit fine and I have no complaints about the product. I will be buying more and have reccommended them to the engineering staff where I work.

It looks like it would work, however the b portion was not the correct size. It is the size of older external drives. The size for older phones. I needed the size that is now considered the universal size.
