    The quick and simple answer is no.

    The HP Personal Media Drive bay itself will only accept HP Personal Media Drives.

    However, all all portable external hard drives are usually USB drives, including the HP Personal Media Drive, so you can use them on any computer. I realize you probably like the idea of just “plugging” in the drive without having to worry about wires but because of the size and where the USB connection is only HP Portable Media Drives will work in the HP Portable Media Drive Bay.
