I can unlock all of that !
You have several options.
1 - Sell those drives at a cheap price to someone like me. Make an offer. If the drives show good S.M.A.R.T. status then i might buy them as lomg as they are very cheap. PM if interested.
2 - Buy firmware tools like PC-3000, MRT, SeDiv, etc .... SeDiv is the CHEAP option out there but have several limitations. You should be able to unlock the mentioned drives with it anyway.
3 - Hire someone like me to unlock the drives. I can unlock all of that for a price.http://www.hddoracle.com/viewtopic.php? ... =89#p11072
As you have a huge amount of those drives let's say i will do it for $10 each. I will unlock each of those drives for $10 so 500 x 10 = 5000 € and i will take the job.
Of course with that $$$ you can buy MRT and do it yourself of buy SeDiv for $350 and it will be a lot cheaper.
Also there is no guarantee that the drives will be OK. They are locked so apart from S.M.A.R.T. you can't check surface to see if there are bad sectors.
