Answers :

As long as they are both the same kind of HDD (SATA or IDE) and you have the extra slots available for power cable and expansion bay, it will be no problem at all. If the HDD you want to put in is an older model, there may be jumper settings to deal with to let your Vaio know it is the secondary drive. Those settings will be available from the HDD manufacturers website.
