✔ Best Answer
Unplug the power cord, open both sides of the case, unplug the cables to the drive, then remove the screws that secure it in place (usually 2 on each side). Slide the drive forward & out thru the front of the case. If you're swapping IDE drives, make sure to set the master/slave jumper correctly or the drive won't be recognized.

If one is IDE and one is SATA, success will depend on what is supported in the computer you are moving it into.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
