I use "unlock" command,and choose 0,then, entered the password "111".MHDD display: "Fail".

I use "EID" command,and it display:

opsss thats a big thing to forget :wink: Better to put it back in your laptop and try to remeber some key words you may have used. Other than that you can make it into a nice coaster for your tea/coffe cup :o

I remember the password,and I confirm that it is "qqqqqq".
I ever access the disk by the password.
but one day, I installed the disk to another computer, entered the password and could not access the disk,and then I reintall the disk to my notebook by which I set the ATA password.but, I also can't access the disk by the password.
So I want to remove the password.Can you tell me What can I do?

do not forget that passwords are 32 symbols ALL THE TIME

if you entered "qqq" it will probably be replaced by "qqq+29 spaces" or something
