Can this be used with an older usb only system? Thanks.
Asked by: Andrew
Sorry it does not. If you are like me and you updated 2 workstations only to realize that now only my Alienware Laptop can access the G-Tech AND there are NO adapters for almost any non-Mac motherboards out there then you'd be upset beyond compare on a daily basis. There are a couple of AMD (I think they were AMD) motherboards I found that allows you to add on a card and/or adapter allowing something of a TB3 connection albeit it at slower speeds (so I have been heavily informed but have not tried). I have talked to a whole heck of a lot of engineers at Dell/Alienware and other vendors about this situation, the lack of TB3 connection but it ALWAYS falls on worse then deaf ears. So my question now to G-Tech is why do I only have access to my G-Tech by a port that no non-Mac user can access with current hardware?!?!?!
