I’ve just ordered a USB 3 PCIe 1x card for my desktop, & will be needing some cables,,, but more importantly – information please.
I know that USB3 is backward compatible, but the connectors are different. Are there cables around to connect either a usb3 PC to usb2 peripheral or usb3 peripheral to usb2 PC ?
My desktop will have both connections, but my laptop has only USB2, so I’ll need future peripherals to be adaptable. My next purchase is going to be an external HDD, so may well go for USB3,,,, as long as I can use it on the lappy as well.
At present, I don’t have anything that’s USB3, so don’t know what the connections are.
I see at Scan that they have some basic [I think ?] cables - (LN32964 - LN33737), but I was wondering if all (or most) USB3 peripherals will have the same / standard connections, like usb2 ?
