    Samsung M3 1TB USB 3.0 Slimline Portable Hard Drive compatibility?

    I have purchased a Samsung M3 1TB USB 3.0 Slimline Portable Hard Drive, it is compatible with my Win 7 desktop (USB 2.0 backwards compatibility). Does anyone know of any compatibility/driver issues with a device like this with Ubuntu?

    Thanks, Dave.

    Unless it uses special encryption software, it should automatically be compatible with Linux. Every USB drive I've ever tried has worked in Linux.

    OK, thanks. I assumed it would be fine, I just wondered if anyone had had any problems.
