Ignorant question... But I'm getting this,

And I plan to move things from my old laptop to my new laptop. The thing is my old laptop only sports USB 2.0, and I really want to update myself with new material, so could I do this? If not, is there a type of USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter of some sort?

It is. My iPod is plugged into a 3.0 right now for no particular reason.

USB 3.0 devices work with 2.0 ports and vice versa.

Wow, appreciate it guys. I was eager to purchase it until I saw some hardware that stated "USB 2.0/3.0" and so I kind of hesitated there, since his had just USB 3.0 on it.

What do you guys think of this purchase though? Is it recommended? If not, any other External Hard drives? Preferably Amazon please.
