ok, i know that usb drives are backwards compatible. but what i would like to know is if i use a usb 3.0 flash drive, to record data in a 2.0 socket. will it transfer at 3.0 speeds going into a newer 3.0 device. or will it remain at 2.0 speeds because that is how the data was recorded. my gut feeling is it will transfer at 3.0 speeds regardless of how it was recorded. but i dont know from experience yet.
