I can't speak to that particular device, but I have not yet had a drive, either internal or external fail to work with Linux.

The easiest way to test for compatibility would be to plug it in and see whether it works . . . and let us know what you fine out.

I second Frank...

It should not matter, particularly in terms of internal drives, what drive it is. Linux should see most (if not all) as "block" devices.
