    USB 3.0 version backwards compatable with USB 2.0?   (11 Answers)

    Is the sandisk ultra 32gb USB 3.0 version backwards compatable with USB 2.0? or even regular USB for that matter? My personal computer has the 3.0 but I think most of the computers I will use this on at work only have USB 2.0.

        Answer

        Simple, you plug it in the usb port on your computer and when it shows up on the desktop just click on it and whatever is stored will be visible to you. I used it to back up my photos along with other flash drives and have never had any problems with any of them. By the way I am, amongst other things, a professional photographer and have stored thousands of images on these flash drives and lock them I'n my safe for safe keeping. When I see an excellent price like this one I grab it! Hope that helps.

          Answer

          It depends on if your computer has a usb 1.1port or a 2.0port. Most flash drive(including this one) for sale now is no longer compatible with 1.1 ports. Recommend to go for a usb 2.0 drive. A regular mp3 music file is around 3MB-10MB depending on quality. If the drive is only used to store those music files, you can save over 5000 songs

          I have the Sandisk Cruzer 2.0 --this Sandisk 3.0 claims to have "write speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0" what does this mean ---does it literally mean that you can key words/write 10 times faster?

            Answer

            What? No--this will not speed up your word processor, or how fast you can type with your fingers. On the off chance that this is not a joke, It is designed to copy your files/information faster to and from your computer. The speed; however, is predicated on whether or not your corresponding intake slot is also 3.0 compatible.

              Yes, it is. That's exactly what I purchased it for, then ended up transferring the backup to a different drive because I was only using half the space. Enjoy!

                Works with just about anything. But if you want the fastest data transfer the device you're using should have USB 3.0.

                  I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 phone and it came with an adapter that you can hook up a flash drive to the phone directly. I have used it to copy files to my phone and also copy from the phone.
