All USB 3.0 devices work well with USB 2.0 Port. Except the Data transaction speed becomes low. Usually, devices which take power from USB port doesn't differentiate between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. You can check your PC if it has a USB 3.0 port. And its driver software. You cannot convert a USB 2.0 port into a 3.0 port. But, the vice versa can be done.
