I have 2 hard disks(2.5") 1 TB and 320GB.
ReadWrite head of 1TB Hdd is damaged.. so I am trying to put the platters of 1 TB hdd to 320 GB hdd..

I don't have exact screwdrivers to open it. Could any one please help me to specify the required type and size of screwdriver ?

Judging by what's written above I would say, it's gonna end up with a disaster, and you are gonna destroy your data for good, without the possibility of recovering.
I strongly recommend - if the data is valuable to you - stop what you doing and send it to a data recovery PRO
I know its not the answer you hoped for, but its the most honest reply I could have think off

if despite what I have said you insist to proceed then you need a torx screwdriver

Oh oh... I can see tears from down here...

Seriously, if you have to ask these questions, DON'T DO IT.
This is wrong in so many levels, it will only end up one way.

You DON'T move the platters when the heads go bad.

As already mentioned...this will not work. Your only option is to seek professional assistance before you completely kill any chance of recovery.

+1 to every response above.

Sadly though, threads like this only lead to more people coming to the conclusion that we in the data recovery business are just keeping secrets to hoard mass amounts of money from people.
