2.0 / 3.0 Cable

I have 2 My Book Essential 2.0 Drives.  Looking at buying a 3rd but can only find the 3.0 version. I would like to know if I can use the 2.0 USB cord to connect the newer 2.0 / 3.0 USB drive?

Thank You

Yes you can connect to the 3.0. It has two “sections” the bigger one were it fits the 3.0 cable and the smaller one for 2.0 ( within the same port )
