The shops in the Computer plaza Al Ain Center will have what you are looking for,

Alternatively, there is a bunch of shops in the Al Musalla Towers building:

Both places are close to each other and have a bunch of computer retailers ...

Also, you might want to consider some cloud storage options, like Google Drive and Dropbox (I use both and am very pleased). Google drive gives you 15 gigs of space, and Dropbox 2 gigs upgradable for free to 50 gigs. You have to complete some steps to get the extra 48 gigs, and dropbox is tied in with some android manufacturers like Samsung, HTC etc. It's secure, extremely easy to setup and all your data is available anywhere via the cloud.

Thanks saraswat, was reluctant to go to computer plaza, I hate it. Endless walking about until you find a store that does have what you want in stock, and that isn't always the case. Will have a wander down this weekend and see if anything is available, unless someone else can say for definite there is another place before then.

Delivery issues. Not in Dubai at week, only weekends, my building doesn't have a PO Box number either so I'd need to deliver somewhere else. I wouldn't be there to sign for it. Complete hassle, prefer to go to a shop and get it myself.
