The amount of games available

WD Black P10 vs My Passport Ultra The USB Forum is really confusing. Are you ready? Okay: Because the word USB 3.0 indicates SuperSpeed, it would be too easy to distinguish which USB is which, thus they don’t use it. So it was called 3.0, but it no longer exists. 3.0 and 3.1 gen 1 are identical in terms of speed and other characteristics (5gbps). Then there’s USB 3.1 gen 2 connectivity (sometimes known as USB 3.0). It’s a significant improvement over the original’s pacing, but PSYCH! Another name change is in need! There are now three 3.1 versions: 3.2 gen 1, 3.2 gen 2, and 3.2 gen 2 by 2! It irritates me! In any case, this disc is USB 3.0 compatible (or 3.1 gen 1, or 3.2 gen 1, or whatever you choose to call it). I’ve owned this hard disc for four months and it’s served me well. I’m an avid player that depends on quick internet connections. While this hard drive was intended for use with games, it could also be used to store programs, images, and documents. In reality, if you only intend to use it for gaming, it’s overkill, but it will outperform non-gaming portable hard drives.
Available in capacities ranging from 5TB(1) to 125 games(2), allowing you to save old favorites while still making room for new titles. |(1)In terms of storage capacity, one gigabyte (GB) equals one billion bytes, whereas one terabyte (TB) equals one trillion bytes. Depending on the operating situation, total accessible capacity varies. |(2)Number of games based on an average of 36GB per game. The amount of games available will vary depending on file size, formatting, other programs, and other variables. It includes an 18-inch (457mm) USB Type-A to Micro-B cable with a SuperSpeed interface capable of 5Gbps. (Cable length may differ.) Compatible with Xbox Series X|S consoles (play and store Xbox One games / archive Xbox Series X|S games) and PlayStation 5 consoles (play and store PS4 games / archive PS5 games). Portable design with a stylish metal top covering for quick access to your growing game library Premium HDD with a 3-year limited guarantee, designed specifically for gamers and based on the WD BLACK quality and reliability. The 99-dollar models transfer at approximately 90 MB/s on my computer; I bought this USB-c type without realizing it was different; it only transfers at 35 MB/s on the same PC, significantly slower for more money; avoid.
The external drive should be bootable on your Mac if you format it in Mac native format and use a clone application like Bombich Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC). For it to be bootable, macOS must be copied across. When booting, hold down the option key to bring up a boot device selection menu. It should come with a 2-3 foot length 3.0 cable (B-type to A-type). I’ve yet to encounter an external USB HDD or HDD enclosure that does not have a USB cable. A USB-C cable is required. I paid $10 for one at my local computer store.
