The FutureBay is a second bay that allows the notebook to hold a second optical drive (CD-RW / DVD combo, CD-RW, DVD or CD), so users can copy data from one drive to another without saving to the hard drive and swap disks—providing ultimate productivity and flexibility. The FutureBay can also hold a second battery, increasing battery life, or simply a floppy disk drive or weight saver.
he MultiBay Adapter is an IDE device that allows users to easily switch and change MultiBay drives including CD-RW, DVD-ROM, CD-ROM and MultiBay hard drives. It is a modular storage bay, allowing for multiple MultiBay devices to be inserted or removed, thereby increasing the expandability and performance of HP Compaq convertible minitowers and small form factor desktops.
had to look that up cuz both terms were new to me...but...looks like futurebay is for laptops and multibay is for desktops....and probably a few more differences...but not sure...looks like both allow for the switching of drives easily (futurebay says it's hot swapable so you could just pop a drive out and pop a new one in instantly)

So I just found a lot of Multybay DVD+-RW drives at eBay with MultyBay II interface, and I'm not sure is it compartible with my Compaq Presario laptop with FutureBay II slot.
