Exchanging HDD between laptops.

I have 2 laptops and was wanting to take the HDD out of the old one (motherboard is screwed) and put it into my new one so i could take all the files off it and burn them to disk. Anybody know if it is possible to do a straight swap or is it more complicated than that.
Cheers

If both are identical then ok if mobo s are different the win will jib cos hardware is different

PS best is to take old hd and instal as no 2 hd in a desktop PC and copy files that way

Why not put it in a caddy, move the files then you also have extra storage space and usable drive.
