    Yes, although the speed it will transfer data will depend on the speed of the USB ports built into y Yes, although the speed it will transfer data will depend on the speed of the USB ports built into your iMac. They could be:

    - USB 1 (transfer speeds of up to 1.5Mb per second),
    - USB 2 (up to 12Mb per second); or,
    - USB 3 speed (apparently up to 625Mb per second)!

    This is important because you don't state what type of iMac you have, and there have been many different models since 1998! Also the real world transfer speeds will depend on what else is running on your iMac at the time.

    But the short answer is, yes it can be used on an iMac.
