A:AnswerHi Sherry, all USB ports are compatible. So if you get a 3.0 drive it will work on both your PC and Laptop. If your laptop has 2.0 USB ports it will be a bit slower to transfer your music but it will work. Hope this helps.
A:AnswerMost assuredly, assuming each of your computers has at least one USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 port. This thumb drive will work in USB 2.0 slots, but it won't be as fast as if it were plugged into a USB 3.0 slot.
A:AnswerUSB 1.0 delivers a speed of 12 MB
USB 2.0 delivers a speed of 480 MB
USB 3.0 delivers a speed of 5 GB
These speeds only reflect the USB technology and do not necessarily mean that the thumb drive, hard drive, etc. can actually run at those speeds.
A:AnswerIf your pictures are all fairly uniform in size, just look at the size of the folder they're in. They're probably sized in mbs. Then just figure the drive at about 60,000mbs. It should hold about 10,000 6mb pics or 20,000 3mb. Just a rough estimate, but unless you're a really busy professional photographer, or the pics are huge file sizes, there should be plenty of room for your pictures on it.
A:AnswerThe drive itself is compatible, but the filesystem may need to be changed. In your Applications folder, Utilities folder, open Disk Utility. In the left column, click the drive name, something like SanDisk 64 GB or similar. Check the bottom of the page to determine the current format. Might be NTFS or FAT32. If it's NTFS, I suggest reformatting the drive. NTFS on Mac is supported READ only. Meaning you won't be able to write files from your Mac to this drive without a special utility or some unsupported tech wizardry. If you don't need to use the drive with a PC or Linux, format the drive with GPT partition table and Mac OS HFS+ Journaled. Otherwise use GPT and FAT32 if you won't be using it for files greater than 4 GB in size. This gives you compatibility to read/write on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Further help with the reformatting process may be found online or from your favorite Mac tech person.
