Hi, yes there are two ways to do that. You can obtain an external drive case or you can obtain a universal drive adapter kit. I will leave a link for both. Ralph

Get an internal IDE hard drive enclosure and put your old drive in it. USB is fine but firewire would be better. Go to applications - utilites - migration assistant and pick "transfer from an external hard drive or other backup. You can move just user data or setting or applications or all of them. You can also use an external adapter like this: http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Newer%20T...
