would say so just hook it up as slave and open it up you can then copy over files and format i have done this in the past with drives,it can be hit and miss but most times they work.

Yes just set it as a slave drive i.e. jumper on the hard drive, connect it to the second IDE connector after the first hard drive and away you go. It should pick up in BIOS automatically as well.
