Thanks for response, but as the product is mac compatible, what I need to know is whether it will work with OS 10.6.8

Asked by: Tony
You would need to format the drive for use with a Mac this would indicate it would work fine on OS 10.6.8. This would work on any version of mac when formatted correctly.

Is USB3 compatible with USB2 products, for example portable hard drive?

Asked by: cruachan
USB 3.0 devices should be backwards compatible with USB 2.0 sockets and vice versa, unless specifically stated otherwise on the device. In your example the data transfer speed would just be capped at the USB 2.0 maximum.
