Help! My friend's puppy chewed the USB cable to my external Seagate 120 GB hard drive (Product code ST9000U2).

Does anyone know where I can get a new one?

It looks like this:

Thanks!

Yoy can get it at one of our recommended online stores, not likely you'll find one in your local BestBuy or Staples.

Newegg.com - BYTECC 3 ft. USB 2.0 Y cable, A male x 2 to Mini B male x1, for 2.5" Enclosure or USB2.0 Hub Model USB2-HD201 - Cables

Thanks NHDave,

I wonder why it only costs $2.49. That seems a little low.

Cables should be cheap because they are cheap. It's only retail stores like Best Buy that charge $25 for a $5 cable.

I found a lot of cheap ones at usbgear.com too. Just didn't happen to see the Y-cable the OP was looking for.
