- Connect old hard drive to computer question

Unfortunately, that computer won't turn on...most likely a bad power supply.
My current computer is a Dell Dimension bought in 2004. It has 2 DVD
Can I simply unplug the E: DVD drive and hook up the old hard disk from
the older computer and see if I can read the hard disk and get the old
program file? Or are there other things I need to do first beforehand?

It was interesting. I got the hard disk installed after setting the
jumpers correctly, fired up the computer, then worried because the old
hard drive's OS was NT4.0.
This computer recognized the drive. Did a couple of searches in
Explorer and found the file I wanted, then disconnected the hard drive.
Worked like a champ.
