Questions about this item:

Shopper  this product is 3.0 and 2.0 usb acceptable right?
FERNANDO K  Yes, it will work with both USB 2.0 and 3.0.
Karol J  I am not computer knowledgeable at all and wonder - I have a PC laptop but will be working with people who have MACs and I will be having to transfer photos, videos and documents (Word, etc) from my PC - 1st question - Is that possible or does this only work for a MAC? And, if that works, 2nd question: I would then copy all my files to the external drive and then would their MAC be able to read my files? Thanks, Nimis (I told you I was computer illiterate!)
Andrew R  In order to use this drive with Windows machines you would need to re-format it (likely in NTFS) unfortunately doing so would make saving data to it from a Mac problematic (Macs generally can read NTFS formatted drives but may not be able to write to them). Windows machines cannot read or write to drives that utilize the native HFS+ format that Macs use.
