Satellite Pro M70: What USB 2.0 Port Replicator is compatible?

Would be grateful if someone could advise me on the purchase of a USB 2.0 port replicator.

I think the 3 USB 2.0 ports on my laptop Pro M70 are not enough, and that's why I want to buy a USB 2.0 Port Replicator.

The site of the Toshiba shop specifies USB 2.0 Port Replicator II (UK) with port network, part number: PX1173U-1PRP, price: 49,93 GBP.

It has 4 USB ports 2.0, which would give me a total of 6 USB 2.0 ports, which would be the absolute minimum I want. (It also has 2 PS/2 ports, 1 serial port RS232 and 1 USB 2.0 port network that takes in charge rates of 10 / 100 Mbps).

Can anyone tell if it is powered by the laptop, or by it's own adapter?

Unfortunately, the Web of Toshiba site has advised that it is currently out of stock and are difficult to get in on all the time, as they are the subject of a sort of "green manufacturing" test.

This prompted me to consider buying a replicator USB 2.0 ports alternative and all I would prefer one with more than 4 USB 2.0 ports, and in fact 6 or more USB 2.0 ports would be preferable. I'm not really interested in other types of ports that are often provided with the replicators of USB 2.0 ports.

I would be grateful if someone could recommend/Advisor at a replicator USB 2.0 ports alternative that would be compatible with my laptop Pro M70.

One of my concerns is how the port replicator USB 2.0 Port is powered. I think I would have preferred that the unit is powered by its own adapter, I understand is 5 Volts with 500 milliamps for each port, rather than to the laptop (probably would be less tax on the laptop, with less heating).

Thank you

I can't comment on the question whether the Replicator you mention has its own power source, although I suspect, he does

However, I have a satellite Pro M70 too and with a similar problem and wanting a hub to connect to all my external printers, Sandy etc using just one connection, I buy PA3390E-1MPM - a hub of Toshiba, Audio/USB multimedia center, which goes a step further and provides a hub not only for USB sources , but also for the speakers etc.

It has its own power supply to the unit and connects via USB 2.0 to my laptop. It is also stackable with the Toshiba Gigastore 250 GB USB 2.0 external hard drive (PA3392E-1MPS) which I also use for backups, storing external data etc.

Had the two units for 3 months now and everything works fine. I got headr of some problems with people in loss of access to the hard drive, but it seems that it was never if it has been disconnected by pulling the cord out usb, rather than make a ' Safely Remove Hardware to disconnect the USB device and so far have had no probs at all

It has 4 ports, more port network and connections from the speakers for the configurations 2/2.1/4/4.1/5.1 full, more Creative software like drivers, more remote control useful to control audio devices. Oh, and also a Surround sound, and EAX

Maybe a little more of your option, but worth it in my opinion. If you can't find it on the Toshiba site I have purchased from

Hope that helps

  • Satellite Pro M70 - what HARD drive can you recommend?

    I have Satellite Pro M70 and I have a 60GB HDD that I see what it s SATA 8 MB of buffer memory. The processor it s 1.73 GHz. I see that there is the Samsung typical 160 GB and the Western Digital Scorpio Blue 160 GB at the same price, which is better?

    And for only $ 11 more there's a Scorpio blue Western digital 320 with even 8 MB buffer than other 2. But I don t think so 320, that's a lot for Satellite Pro M70, and I have an external drive 2.5 "250 GB, data with this is not problem.

    What the best solution for this laptop? I don t want to burn now the phone LOL.

    Thank you


    If your laptop is already equipped with SATA interface, you can use each HDD with SATA1 or SATA2 port on the new SATA interface there is no limit on the old standard IDE

    It s your choice what HARD drive you buy because I put t know your needs, but in my opinion it makes no difference which manufacturing you buy the HARD drive. All hard drives are similar and there is no significant difference (performance).
    I made good experiences with Western Digital and Hitachi hard drives.

    By the way: you can buy a HARD drive with 7200 rpm or 5400.rpm. Latter is faster but requires more power. In my opinion, this is useful if you often work with large files.

  • Satellite Pro M70 - what is the Bluetooth module reference number

    Could someone who has a Toshiba Satellite Pro M70, with bluetooth, tell me the part number of the bluetooth module please?

    You can reed one of the labels under your laptop. You can read bluetooth inside, the reference is in the left side of the label, and it will be something like this: PA3418U-BTM.

    Thank you.


    Why you n t make a call to the service allowed in your country partner and would order a compatible BT module for your laptop?
    In my opinion, it would be the best way to get a.

    Unfortunately I m no owner of the satellite Pro M70 and, therefore, I have don t know the part number for BT. But my A210 has been equipped with an internal module of BT and PA3608U-1BTM part number

  • Satellite Pro M70 - SR3: cause of Serial Port USB

    Recently bought portable computer Pro Satellite M70 - SR3. Tried to connect my Garmin Streetpilot 3. This requires the serial port. Buy the store of the local computer conversion kit.
    Install the drivers from the disc that came with the cable. No luck
    Garmin does not display a USB connection. Contacted Garmin, they say that it is a problem of Toshiba.



    Sorry, but I don't think that it is a problem of Toshiba.
    I put t know which converter you purchased, but perhaps is not a compatible part.
    If the garmin do not display USB connection so I don't know why it should be a problem of Toshiba. Have you tried to connect this device to another computer?

  • Satellite Pro M70 freezes everytime when the USB port is used

    Satellite Pro M70 (SPM76) crashes every time when the USB port is used.
    The mouse works, but external HD/Extarnal card sound/Memory stick causing the laptop to freeze. All the drivers are installed right, they are the most recent and have no trouble with other users.

    The devices are all compatible. Service pack 2 is installed, and all the hardware drivers on the toshiba have been updated... again, same problem.
    The toshiba is about 2 months old and have had this problem since I got it. First I thought it was the drvers, but I cleared of all (?) other options but the USB ports.


    Believe me, that's not easy to say what the problem may be. It is important to see if the problem occurs because of hardware or software may be. I recommend you to backup all your data and reinstall the unit using rescue media. On this way the unit will be factory settings and will be clean preinstalled. Test your USB devices and see what happens.

    Try to use some standard like USB stick or external HARD disk parts, because in this case, you must not install any drivers please. If you use other devices like USB webcam with own software and drivers, it is possible that something goes wrong, but what. On this path, it is not possible to say.

  • Satellite Pro M70 - USB port does not recognize the device

    My Satellite Pro M70 has three USB slots, one on the left and two (vertically one above the other) at the back of the laptop.

    The top slot to USB in the back started giving problems. Sometimes, my computer can't see all that I plugged in there. But if I unplug anything - usually the printer or the mouse - the computer will usually see it then.

    What is the problem? Can do nothing about it?

    My operating system is XP. and my laptop is 4.33 year.

    Thank you.

  • Satellite Pro M70: Question on the port on the left hand side

    Another question regarding the Pro M70 PSM75E, next to the hard drive (left side) there is a port which you can take off. I took it of and it looks like a chip grafx or something: s someone with the M70 not what it is.

    Thanks again


    Well, there are of many Satellite Pro M70. It s a great series.
    But for example Satellite Pro M70-110 has a PCMCIA Type II slot.
    You can use the different PCMICA card in this slot. But they must be compatible.
    I guess this slot machine, you found a plastic Board. This is only for security.

    However, if you want to learn more about your device, I would recommend reading the user manual which must be preinstalled on your laptop. You will find very, very, very ;) useful information.

  • Video capture with a satellite Pro M70: which ports and drives can I use?

    I want to edit my home movies on my Satellite Pro M70 using WXP Pro (win dvd or movie maker). I want to capture video from my panasonic camcorder that has digital strips. What are the ports that I can use and what cables do I need? I'm desperate to edit my recent wedding video to put on DVD and mail it to my mom. The panasonic website has ignored me! Any advice anyone?

    Well, as far as I know this unit has only one S-video output port. In this case, you can connect the laptop to the TV and look at the photo of laptop to TV but it of not possible to receive all the signals of TV or any other device on your laptop.
    To receive the signals, you need a composite or a s-video port.

    However, if the camcorder has a firewire if port you can send digital files through the firewire connection. But this should only work with digital files that are saved on the camcorder.

  • Satellite Pro M70: removal of the USB device causes other peripheral USB does not work

    Withdrawal/use of a USB for a USB device causes devices on USB port to get affected.

    Satellite Pro M70-199 (2 GB RAM)
    Windows XP Pro (SP2) with all updates of Windows installed until end of October 2006.
    This laptop has 3 USB ports.
    An Eicon Diva ISDN USB modem is connected to a USB port.

    When certain devices connected to a different USB port are deleted (even if removed safely with "eject" or "remove device safely", it causes the ISDN modem to file either a double channel (64 k + 64 k) ISDN, or for the ISDM modem to disconnect completely.)

    Cause this include any memory stick USB, MP3 player (ipod and creative zen) and so on.

    Do other devices, such as USB external hard drives & sometimes external DVD USB drives, and sonetimes do not produce this problem.

    Is this a known issue?
    If it is a hardware interrupt problem, how to solve it?
    This problem is related to the modem and the laptop?

    As a note, in addition, intermittent (random) times (cannot reproduce all the time, but it happens once or twice a day) when a USB device is accessible it causes the modem USB ISDN to drop a single channel, even if the lights on the modem still show it as it is connected. In this case and the case above, the only way to get the modem ISDN USB running again is physically disconnect and reconnect.

    The reason why it is a crucial issue is that:
    (1) the modem speed is halved or disconnected
    (2) the ISP continues to full rate for a double load connection even if a channel has been dropped.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I have Satellite M70-159 and I didn t notice any strange problems with the USB ports. I use a few of them as printer, webcam, USB, memory stick, optical mouse, and external HARD drive. The devices are recognized correctly and I always remove without option delete without danger.

    Now I have Vista pre-installed and there is no problem so far. If I understand you right USB ports work fine but there is problem with USB modem only. Am I wrong?
    Also try to contact the producer of modem support. Is perhaps the question like this known and if all goes well, they have a logical explanation.

    I guess that your average slot on the right side of the laptop.
    Well, the express card expansion slot can accommodate two standard module formats: an expressCard/34 and expresscard/54 module to the module. An expressCard module is small, modular add-in card technology based on USB and PCI Express interface.

  • External USB floppy drive for Satellite Pro M70

    I just bought a Satellite Pro M70 Centrino Mobile 750 to replace my Satellite 5105 - S702, which exposes the same type of problems of corruption/crash video display described elsewhere in these forums.

    I need an external floppy drive, and the site of the Toshiba shop specifies an external USB Floppy Drive Ref. PA3109E-3FDD.

    However, I have an external drive USB Floppy, Réf. PA3109U-1FDD, I bought for the satellite 5105-S702 about 4 years ago.

    5105-S702 has USB 1.1 ports and satellite Pro M70 has USB2 ports.

    Issues related to the:

    PA3109U-1FDD will work with the satellite Pro M70?

    There are likely to be problems of compatibility, driver issues or any probability/possibility of damage to the Sat ProM70?

    Would appreciate any advice.

    Thank you


    Hi Alan

    I really don? t know why you ask if the floppy drive will not work. Why you don? t he try? As far as I know, it should work and you should not buy a new one.

    Just for info: a few months ago, I saw the Toshiba FDD drives with part number PX? And these drives are not bootable but on the lower side, there is a label with this information.

    Anyway, you can use your other more ancient. According to the specification tested for MS M70 is FDD Drive Kit PA3109U-1FDD (your one).

    Good luck

    Anyone know if this means that it is a mechanical problem with the computer? (I use Windows XP). Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey Buddy,

    As wrote Akuma did you use the Toshiba Recovery disk or the Microsoft Windows disk?

    After installing XP, make sure that Service Pack 3 is installed. It contains important updates and can be downloaded on the official page of Toshiba.

    In addition, try to remove all the USB ports on the Device Manager, restart the computer. Ports will still be recognized and ready to use once.

    I've never heard of the Microsoft kernel DLS synthesizer and that's why I studied a bit.

    I found this MS developer site:

    It is said:
    The component of the Microsoft kernel DLS synthesizer provides the port of DMusic, content class miniport driver in the dmusic.sys file

    It seems that most of the problems with this kernel occur due to lack of SP2.
