So for Christmas I got an external SSD (Monster Digital Overdrive 3.0) I own a late 2010 Macbook Pro, that sadly (and weirdly) only has 2.0 USB ports. So you can imagine my disappointment when I plugged in the drive, and transferred some movie files. I waited for 2-3 minutes per file. A few questions: 1. How can I use this external drive to the best performance? I just want to store data and movies. I like that it's solid state so that will make the files last longer. Will the files still last long on here despite the fact that they were transferred from a 2.0 USB? 2. Is there a way I can buy a separate 3.0 USB Port for my macbook that's portable? 3. I keep hearing about FireWire ports. Not sure which one my Macbook has, but this SSD won't plug into it. I'm confused as to what to do now. Should I just return this until I can buy an updated Macbook Pro that has 3.0 USB Ports? Or keep it, since it's still 256GB SSD and will keep my files safe. I mean it's just a matter of transfer speed right? Or will it not function properly ?
