Any HP media drive from 120 gb up to 2tb.
The for instance HP HD5000S, which is a 500 gb portable external hard drive and will also drop in a HP personal media bay.
As long as they have 2.0 USB and it is HP it will fit.
With the exception of any of the HP Pocket media drive, they will work, but only as a external drive.

Not sure what you mean by personal media player.

1) If its an Ipod or any MP3 player, you should be able to connect any via a USB cable, or directly plugged in.

2) if you mean CD or DVD drive/player like the one that came with it, they're generic, any with the correct interface (IDE or SATA) Though I think SATA in this case.

Here's a URL with the full specification of your system to help:-

If you mean the "personal media bay" listed here, I think were back to a generice CD/DVD drive.

By the part number, I see you have an USB external 750Gb (HP HD7500S USB 2.0 Hard Drive) or an HP Personal Media Drive (HD5000s) For information on the Personal Media Drive, I am posting this HP link for more information for you to copy paste in a new browser window.

Hi, HP Pocket Media drives work like regutalr external hard drives, in fact, the bring an usb cable so you can connect it to any computer, not just HPs with the media bay. Are you using the HP bay or the USB cable? Regardless, after you connect the hard drive and go to my computer and see if it shows up. If it does, just select the files and do a copy and paste to the new hard drive. I dont know if you are having problems with the software it might have or the fact that it doesnt show up on the computer, but like I said you would handle it like a regular hard drive. I hope this helsp

Connect ide or sata drives to a dell poweredge 2600 for additional storage


Yes and No..

The standard machine only allows SCSI, (no IDE or SATA or SAS connectors...

However SCSI drives are not cheap.. so

To overcome the power issue (you will notice there are no 4 pin molex connectors, or sata power connectors). However there is a 4 pin molex socket on the SCSI backplane. You can use one of those molex adaptor cables (one connector to many) to get power, from the molex you can use a 4 pin to SATA power connector.

Next step is to decide the drive you want to use. I personally use SCSI, SATA, SAS and IDE in mine (overkill I know).

Cheapness says use IDE or SATA. You can get a pci IDE/SATA controller card on ebay dirt cheap (PCI cards are compatible with the large PCIX slots), they dont take the entire "socket" up but they work (be carefull here, there is one 5v pci socket on these machines, and 6 pcix sockets, the pcix sockets will accept 3.3v pci cards (look at the notches).

Next you have to mount them, with a bit of jiggery pokery you can feed the IDE/SATA cables past the SCSI backplane into the hot swap bay. (If you dont have any empty caddy's pick them up off ebay), just remember you cant just pull em out like you can with the SCSI's!) - or use one of the 5 1/2 media bays.

Plud the other ends into the appropriate controller card (as installed in the PCI bus).

Load up the OS, install drivers (if needed - these should come with the pci card(s), use the disk manager to initialise/first format the drives etc.

All done.

I have done this myself running a 2600, with 2X U320 72gb SCSI (on Raid) 1 x IDE CD/DVDRW in Media bay, DAT 27 SCSI (channel B) in the second media bay. 2x 146gb SAS on a DELL SAS pcix card (in 2 of the hot swap bays) and an old 160gb IDE HDD (Funilly enough theres a bit towards the back of the two fans on the SCSI backplane that if you press the 3 1/2 drive against seems to fit perfectly in this place and stay there! (I think thats fluke to be honest).

All done :)

Want to add an internal hard drive to the hp d530 compaq. Is there any other way to fit it, besides removing floppy drive?


it a slimline small form factor design and unfortunately you will not have a second 3.5" bay. I would recommend using a usb floppy because the use of a floppy drive is quite limited now

New pocket media drive is stuck in computer


Just a dumb answer try removing the screws, if it doesn't work use your strength and rip it out. If you can't, then open the computer and take out the bay, then rip it out. If you still can't, step aside and let a mad do it for you.

HP Media Centre PC 7250 can I add a hard drive?


Here's a step by step guide for that HP 7250 model on HP's website about how to replace, or remove/add the Primary and Secondary Hard Drives (which pictures that help).

If your computer did not come with a second hard drive, you can install a second hard drive that you attach to the bottom of the inside of the computer tower.
