Once the drive is transferred to the new system and you are sure you got all your data off of it, then format it.

Changing the subject a bit. Are those WD 1TB Blacks noisy? Compared to WD Blues?

I have a total of 6 WD Black drives in my computer in addition to 2 WD RaptorX and 2 SSDs (I'm a storage whore). The blacks don't make any noise at all but the Raptors are extremely loud. The performance of the blacks is simply amazing
