Can you convert usb 3 to usb 2?

My PC has only USB 3 ports.

Is there a way to convert one to USB 2?
-I believe for 3 sensors I will need that.

thats if your using sensors on 2 different ports.

 

so if you one in a usb 2 and the other 2 in a usb 3, they run into problems

but if you use the same speed for all sensors its balanced.

 

you will be fine as long as there all plugged in the same bandwidth controller.

usb 3 will work for usb 2 rated products, you don't need to convert

 

all usb 3 means is that they are faster than usb 2.

 

you can not go the other way though so if something needs a usb 3 port and all you have a usb 2 it won't be as fast.

That's an old post, currently Oculus recommends that all sensors use usb3.
