Toshiba offers complete repair and refurbishment services at their repair facility.

If you have a defective Toshiba Hard Disk Drive and you wish to claim for warranty, you have to distinguish between the two following possibilities:

1. If the Toshiba Hard Disk Drive was installed in another device (e.g. PC, laptop, Non-Toshiba branded external housing , MP3 player, etc.) when purchased, then it can only be repaired by the device manufacturer. Please contact the device manufacturer for information on the repair procedure.

2. If you bought the Toshiba Hard Disk Drive from a shop, then guarantee claims can only be made with the shop which sold you the drive. The contents of the guarantee comply with the legal regulations in the country, in which the product was purchased.

In Case of Toshiba Portable External Hard Disk Drives, this regulation only applies to devices with the following part numbers:

HDDR160E03X/HDDR160E03E
HDDR250E03X/HDDR250E03E
HDDR320E03X/HDDR320E03E
HDDR400E03X/HDDR400E03E
HDDR500E03X/HDDR500E03E

Toshiba does NOT provide a direct repair service for anyone other than our OEM customers. It is not possible to make claims directly to Toshiba in cases of possible defects. Therefore you should NEVER send a defective drive to Toshiba representatives, because they cannot process this type of transaction!
