    • Insert it down into the slots. You should hear a slight click if it has been inserted correctly.

    • I hear Microsoft's warranty support service doesn't take kindly to freely bouncing hard drives.

If you don’t have the metal tray the HDD it secured too you can still insert the hard drive into the new console although it will be suspended by the connector and will bounce around and could easily become dislodged if the console was moved and you hard drive could fall and end up corrupted.
