Which tool did you use to set a password? BIOS or something else?

If you decipher the OP's SMS-ese gibberish, you will note that the drive is a WD My Passport. MHDD does not handle such models, nor does it handle USB drives.

To the OP, see page 24 of the following document:

My Passport User Manual:
https://www.wdc.com/content/dam/wdc/web ... 705155.pdf

Quote:
When you have forgotten your lost password, you can erase the drive by entering five invalid passwords on the Unlock Drive dialog.
