I have a plain-jane 320 GB Seagate HD that I want to install in my Xbox 360.  I have seen several tutorials on performing this and it looks daunting!  There seems to be a nice utility for Western Digital Drives called Hddhackr for updating the firmware.  Apparently, I need a Hddss.bin file that is for my type of drive as well…..

Is there an easy way to perform this on a Seagate hard drive?  Clear simple direction would be awesome!

What about if I want to use it in the internal drive bay instead?
