Can USB 3.0 work with 2.0 port?

0 votes
Hello everyone,
Currently electronic devices are produced a lot. With our usage needs, it is required that those devices can be compatible, synchronous with each other. Therefore, manufacturers have integrated connection ports on their devices to ensure connectivity. Devices now often come equipped with USB 3.0 ports. However, for those using older devices, only USB 2.0 ports are available. So if I plug the USB 3.0 port into the USB 2.0 port, will it work? Hope everyone help answer.
Thanks everyone.

USB 3.0 is also backward-compatible with USB 2.0, so you can plug a USB 2.0 peripheral into a USB 3.0 port and it will function properly. You can also plug a USB 3.0 peripheral into a USB 2.0 port and it will work just fine. ... Unlike USB 2.0, however, USB 3.0 delivers greater power.
