Hi, I bought an Toshiba external HDD that have an 3.0 connection (use a micro usb 3.0 to usb 3.0 cable), the problem is that my laptop don't have a usb 3.0 but it has an esata+usb 2.0 port, so the solution will be a usb 3.0 to esata cable but it exist? and how is it call? do I have other relatively cheap option?
Thanks for answer

No such cable exists that I found but USB3 is backwards compatible to USB2 so the drie should work as is, just not at full speed.
If you can return the Toshiba there are many options to get an eSata drive running.
