USB2 vs USB3, what works?

(How to tell the difference)

Posted by Nicole Hayes on January 8, 2018

Our Dongles and Software require your system to have a USB 2 Port.

Newer computers/laptops are available with USB 3, you can identify these by the color of the port itself, if the port is blue then it is a USB 3 and will not work directly with your Dongle and Software. You will need to buy a USB 3 to USB 2 Port adapter.

Please ensure you check.

Silver USB Port – Good to go
Blue USB Port - Adapter required
