External HD Question, Data after console change...

So, my original console optical drive is malfunctioning, and I have a replacement coming from MS.  My question is to anyone that has had this done, or replaced their system.  I have most of my apps and games on my external.  Does anyone know if I change consoles, will my existing apps and games stay on the external after I switch, or will I have to DL everything all over again.  I know it's technically already formatted and has data on it, but I didn't know if it was specific to the serial number of the original console.
