usually yes but you won't get usb 3 data transfer speeds only usb 2 speeds.

a more detailed explanation is here :- http://www.howtogeek...usb-3.0-cables/

note :-

 

A USB 2.0 cable may not be adequate for a high current USB 3.0 device.

Both links work just fine, WilliamP

 

If you are having difficulty in opening them, it indicates that you have some issues with your computer that may need addressing.... :(
