What is the easiest way to switch out a hard drive? I just want an original one to put back in it without having to do a bunch of stuff..just don't have the time anymore to mess with. Basically I want to plug and play, like replacing a dvd drive. Is this possible?

you need to lock the hard drive with the appropriate key for your motherboard

No its not plug and play, unless:
1. you have a modchip
2. someone sells you an unlocked stock HD with all the necessary files

There's one other option. You can use one of the installer discs (Slayer's, etc) to rebuild the stock harddrive. Most of them take care of locking the drive, too. It's the closest you can get to plug-and-play if the drive is blank/formatted for another system.
