adding hard drive to 4GB?

We have a 250GB xbox 360 which is not reading discs any more.  Just wondering if we bought a new 4GB, can we put the hard drive from the original machine in it?  If so, is it just a matter of plugging it in or what needs to be done to get it working?

Hi RegularRain8, Is your current Xbox 360 the original or the new S edition.  They are different Xbox hard drive accessories. There is a basic process for installing an existing hard drive to a new Xbox 360.  Check out the guide here support.xbox.com/.../add-remove-hard-drive

If you're trying to move data from an old original Xbox hard drive to a new slim console's hard drive, you will need a transfer cable with the latest dashboard version installed on the console.

Direct answer to the OP:

Yes, as long as your 250 GB is the slim model.
