Do you have any more pictures like of ports or connections?

From here it just looks like an external HD, but you’d probably know if it was that.

I think it is the new iPhone 5;) Seriously, it looks like a laptop internal battery. Most new laptop batteries are getting smaller in size to accommodate the necessity for smaller, more portable laptops. I would suggest you call the Toshiba client services help desk to better identify what this item truly is. Let us know!

It seems to be a PMCCIA and an internet search of the model or serial numbers may indicate it’s purpose along with an examination of its connectors should reveal its intended function.

As far as I can tell it’s an external RAM add-on that fits in a PCMCIA slot. Probably from the early to mid-90’s. If you still have a laptop with a pcmcia slot, try it ?

Does it have any jacks for external connectors on the outside edge ?
If so then it is something else… like a USB extender with four ports…
