hi i have a my book essential 500GB drive (model # in Suject) and i was wondering im getting a new computer with USB 3.0 ports on it. Is it combatible with that version of USB or do i have to just use the USB 2.0 slot
Did the drive come as USB 3.0 compatible? If so it should work but USB 3.0 seems to be a bit buggy from what I can see. It should work on USB 2.0 without problems.
when i got it the box said it used USB 2.0
Then it will only work on USB 2.0. There is on way to upgrade the external drive to use USB 3.0.
thanks if you could just let me know how to do that so whne i get the computer that has it i can so it that would be great
