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.
