USB 3.0 backwards compatible

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a a ST0014U-C Duet 3.0usb  it is being used on a Mac Pro that is only 2.0usb.  I assumed that it would still read but be much slower than 3.0.  I have tried several hard drives and none of them popup anywhere, not even in Disk Utility. Am I SOL without a 3.0 pci card? Thanks for the help!!

Technically USB 3.0 is backwards compatible.  So if they met all of there specs it should be as well.  The question is did they or not?  Could be your unit is DOA.  You should replace it under warranty.
