Nope. USB is Universal, so any USB hub should work. If your hard drive is bus powered though, you MUST have a powered hub, otherwise, any $10 USB 2.0 hub will work.

You might want to think about getting a powered unit, particularly for HDD's. :)
Saves headaches at a minimum, and not expensive. Especially for peace-of-mind. :p
