External floppy

I am going to buy an external floppy that connects via USB. I have a new computer that doesn't have a floppy drive. If the floppy drive only mentions the 1.1 USB, will it work on my computer, which has the 2.0 USB?
Correct me if i'm wrong, but it should. 2.0 has compatability for both 1.1 and 2.0 but 2.0 doesn't work with the 1.1

Does USB 1.x devices work on USB 2.0?

Answer: Yes, the majority of USB 1.0 or 1.1 devices and hubs are compatible with USB 2.0. However, a USB 1.0 or 1.1 devices are not going to have all of the capabilities and features found USB 2.0. If you are having trouble getting a USB 1.x device working with USB 2.0 it is likely an issue with USB and not a compatibility issue.

In addition a USB 2.0 device will work on a USB 1.1 or 1.0 port unless otherwise stated by the manufacturer of the USB device. It is important to realize that some USB devices not not operate as well in USB 1.x because of the 12Mbps bandwidth.

[/edit] Correct meself, it's easier :p
