    The product can easily be opened, but you will void your warranty. A skilled person can do this without any special tools.

    That being said, you will have to be sure the replacement drive is similar to the one being replaced. Attempting to use a drive that has the same specs should be OK, but you will not have any support from LaCie or Apple should anything not work as expected.

    If you are experimenting, this isn't the best place to get information. Further questions should be left to those with more advanced technical skills. The internet is your friend.
