Replace hard drive

Can you tell me the type of hard drive I would need in order to replace the drive for a larger 2tb. I have the WD10000H1NC-00 mybook world edition. Is it as simple as remove and replace with a new drive?


Non-broken tabs!

I was able to get the cover off without breaking the tabs by looping 2 large paperclips through the holes next to the tabs, slipping a screwdriver into those paperclips and pulling the case away from the tabs as I slid the cover off.
Plastic Spatula Prybar

This guide was very helpful - and the tabs are hanging in where they can bend back someday - but I was surprised that a spatula was not used at the fourth illustration where there are no access holes. I was first shown this trick in the days of the toaster Macintosh and how much is viagra. It prevents scarring of the case. Fingernails (or a throwaway spatula) can open the crack in the covers and the spatula will hold the tabs apart; on the other side the screwdrivers are fine. Then a cross-handed pull (or two) on the covers will open the case up.
