What your describing is a standard IDE connection, the easiest way, is to buy a cheapo IDE external drive enclosure, put the old drive in that and then connect it up via usb and transfer that way to new drive, or you could get a utility cd like Hirens and use the freeware tools to copy the old hdd complete disk structure on to the new hdd, no mucking around with importing files and settings and then when your happy, format the old drive and use as an external backup.
