I am looking to buy a USB flash disk for a gift.
The one I have in mind is a USB 2. Will this be compatible if the recipient only has a USB 1 drive.

yes compy it will be compatible it will be slower though,the only difference with usb1 and 2 is that 2 is faster they should be compatibly,have a look at what you are buying if it says usb 1 backward compatible then yes,.ben
