To clean a WD 3TB HDD up for re-use on a Windows machine, I first tried to low level the drive in Windows/10 with HDDLLF and all I got is I/O error messages at each sectors of the drive!

I though that was because the drive was password protected, so I tried to suppress the password on it and I see these two messages:

Code:
root@Tristram:~# hdparm --user-master u --security-erase-enhanced ******* /dev/sdc
security_password: "*******"

/dev/sdc:
Issuing SECURITY_ERASE command, password="*******", user=user
SG_IO: bad/missing sense data, sb[]:  70 00 05 00 00 00 00 0a 04 51 40 00 21 04 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

The same with the option "--security-erase". Does it means that all I can do is trash the drive? :(
