Moving RAID1 disks from one NAS to another

Hi, Experts!
I am a proud owner of WD MY BOOK Live Duo, where I have two 2TB disks budled in RAID1 and some useful data on it.
I was quite unhappy with the NAS, so I bought a new one,  SYNOLOGY  DS-213J, without disks.
So the question is, how to move savely the disks from one nas to another without loosing any user data?
Can I simply plug the disks out of one and plug them into another?

Many thax in advance

Not familiar with the WD model but if it has USB port then can't see why not...sure try it and see

I think it is very unlikely.  The two products appear to run different operating systems.

Agree...the Synology will probably wipe the disks once really need to move the data to another drive first and then setup on the new NAS...then copy the data back

If they were the SAME family this would work(i.e. Synology to Synology) but since different I wouldn't expect it to work at all...

Is it then possible to backup the data over USB while avoiding network roundtrip? E.g. connect with SSH and simply cp from one mount to another?
