I bought a replacement MacBook, and inserted the 500BG SSD from the old machine into the new one. I also have a few backup HDD's which I used with TimeMachine on the old machine.

Can I safely use those drives with the new PC? The new MacBook Pro is of the same vintage as the old one, and I moved all configurations to the new PC by way of swapping the old SSD into the new PC.
