Hello again, I see that several people have downloaded the file that I uploaded previously. I do appreciate any help I can get on this and was just wondering if anybody has gotten anywhere on this?

If you can read module 02 with script (or at least some sectors of it) then SA access is not locked and WDR DEMO will unlock your drive.

It seems wrong. Have you followed correctly the steps for obtaining it ? Please, read again from the start of this thread. Also, does the hdd have only an ATA password, or was it removed from some DVR or similar machine ?

File too small. You need to dump more sectors of module.

As alternative use this instead :

http://www.hddoracle.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=33

Detect the correct drive (select PORT) and use the command to clear ATA password.

Download the tool. It will work only on 32 bit windows XP or 7. This is because of the low level access driver. You can use Hiren's Boot CD mini XP if needed.

Now read here this step by step to READ ROM :

http://www.hddoracle.com/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=1127

This will teach you how to properly detect the drive with WDR DEMO.

Instead of using the function to READ/WRITE ROM use the function to CLEAR PASSWORD.

As alternative get something like WDMarvel, pay for license and use the option to remove password. There are also other free alternatives like hddsupertool .... Or you can use the MHDD script to dump another sector of module 02 .... Or you can use WDMarvel DEMO to dump module 02 (even if you don't buy it) .... Or you can use WDMarvel DEMO and select the option to READ CONFIG (either from platter or RAM) and you should see your password there ... etc ... etc ...

I have questions!

1. laptop broke down, Drive had ATA password. I know the SSD password.

2. I have new laptop where I cant use the drive from old broken laptop. It tells me the password is wrong.
So after reading this thread I think I need to do the key scan codes to ASCII translation.
I pasted it below, do I understand it right how to do it? Can someone check it?

3. I cant run MHDD, the password prompt blocks bootup from USB. Cant go past it.
Can I first boot MHDD and than plug in SATA drive? is it safe to plug it in while PC is turned ON?
My laptop is lenovo 700-15isk.
I also have access to dell laptop but the BIOS pass prompt blocks me from booting MHDD

Code:
password   hexKEYcode    --->        ASCII        DEC
l               26                     &           38
i               17                     ETB         23
n               31                     US          31
n               31                     US          31
1               02                     STX          2
4               05                     ENQ          5
8               09                     BS           8
3               04                     EOT          4

NUM (not sure how old laptop saved password)
1               4F                      O          79
4               4B                      K          75
8               48                      H          72
3               51                      Q          81

What can I do to unlock it? (samsung 840 evo)

I believe the following MHDD script should work:

Code:
; send ATA SECURITY DISABLE PASSWORD command to disable password

reset
waitnbsy
regs = $00 $00 $00 $00 $00 $a0 $f6
waitnbsy
checkdrq
sectorsfrom = disablpw.bin

; disablpw.bin must be 0x200 bytes, padded with 0x00

; word 0 = 0x0000 -> compare user pwd
; word 0 = 0x0001 -> compare master pwd

; words 1 - 16 -> 32-byte password

; Offset(h) 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F

; 00000000  00 00 26 17 31 31 02 05 09 04 00 00 00 00 00 00
; ........
; 000001F0  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

Did you ever manage to get the password removed?

Just posting in case this helps someone else.

I had a WD that was locked but after unlocking and disabling the password with MHDD, the drive still appeared locked after reboot, and then couldn't be unlocked anymore.

The drive was a WD800BB-00CAA1 with master password XBOXSCENE (used in an Xbox).

I used MHDD with the dump2 script as found in this thread to get the password before and after unlocking. The password appeared to be gone after unlocking, but the drive still acted locked and wouldn't let me see the files on it. Someone else on this forum had the same problem however their drive died so they gave up on it. Maybe there are others in the same boat who need help.

I did manage to get the drive unlocked through trial and error, and here's what did it for me:
  • I used HDAT2 (v6.0 beta 5) instead of MHDD.
  • I went into a menu and used the option to dump the password from WD drives (Commands Menu, I think? I'll have to double check and edit this later). That dump function appears to work the same as a couple of the MHDD scripts, but it shows the output right on the screen instead of saving to a file.
  • I went into the Security Menu and after pressing down to go to the next item in the menu, I noticed the red options (Set Password, etc) suddenly turned white. So I set the master password back to XBOXSCENE. The trick, though, seems to be that you also need to set the user password. So I set that to XBOXSCENE as well.
  • I rebooted and went back into HDAT2.
  • I went into the Security menu and unlocked the drive using both the master and user passwords.
  • In the same menu, I disabled both the master and user passwords.
  • I rebooted and went back into HDAT2, and the drive now showed as unlocked!

The first time I noticed that I could set the password, after using the password dump function, I only set the master password. Then I rebooted, went back in, unlocked and disabled the master password, and rebooted. However, that put me back at square one, where I was after using MHDD. So as I said, definitely set the user password as well as the master password.

I think this would work from MHDD as well. I suspect that if you run the dump scripts and then tried to set the password, MHDD would allow you to, just like HDAT2 does after dumping.

I've attached a screenshot comparing 42.bin before and after unlocking using MHDD. Figured that might be of some interest as well. I noticed a couple of other differences aside from the password.

If this helps you, let me know!
