This is an older generation of the WD Passports that are only USB 2.0. The newer versions sport USB 3.0


The specs listed on the site specifically say USB 3.0. The manufacturer part number they provide is WDBACX0010BBK-NESN. Western Digital's website specifically says it's USB 3.0, and the WDBACX0010BBK I have sitting on my desk is a USB 3.0 drive.

What makes you think this doesn't support USB 3.0?


@chiquita I was referencing the wrong model number apparently as I thought the WDBBEP0010BBK-NESN's were the USB 3.0 version of the My Passport Essentials. My apologies!
