Succefully unlocked WD2500BEVT-35A23T0 from Samsung notebook NP-R530! After 2 weeks of "dances with a tambourine" on 4 different desktops with MHDD4.5 and scripts for it from here and from http://yura.puslapiai.lt/files/wd/mhdd/index.html, I suspected some firmware modification from notebook manufacturer and just installed disk to its place on notebook and gave a try pwgwn-samsung.py from https://github.com/dogbert/bios-pwgen/b ... samsung.py and also the http://bios-pw.org Voilà!
Need a remark. First time both of them generated a little different passwords p54xa8s and p54xa8sb for code 318C300AA587097C30. No luck with both. On second try password was p54xa8s5 for code 436403284b3c841fc0. No luck. Then I entered to BIOS Setup and set supervisor password 11111111. Superviser password needed to set/clear HDD password in BIOS Setup. After that catched that password by code 360110044080020800 and one more time by code 280401104002088010. Entered in BIOS Setup again and cleared supervisor password. After that notebook accept password p54xa8s5. After unlocking HDD all scripts, I tried before with no luck, works fine. Script from fzabkar damped master password as '50 00 35 00 34 00 58 00 41 00 38 00 53 00 35 00 ..... 00' i.e. P54XA8S5 - all capitals spaced with 00 and ended with 00's.

okay so i been reading some more , but stuff still dont make much sense to me. i never had to unlock a hard drive ever so this is a first for me. im kinda good with computers and figuring out stuff but this one is just doing my head in and here is why...

like i said this drive is from an original xbox. the xbox drive crashed on me a week ago, so only way to use a new drive is to get the key for the drive cause each drive is locked to the xbox , without locking the new drive with the same key the drive wont work on the xbox... i need the user password. cause it cant possibly be the master one , there is no way that xbox would use that "WDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWD" as the pass.

but here is my issue i did look online for examples of xbox hard drive passwords, all i can see is that all of them are 32 characters. but none of them have some of the characters that u get from typing in a password using alt command. u know like hearts and stuff like that. so i dont know :(

anyone can help me figure out what the user password is on this file...

Dear community:
First of all I introduce myself. My name is Juan Manuel and I am from Argentina. (also please excuse my horrible English).
I have given to you because of nowhere, after formatting my HDD WD Caviar Green 500GB for the OS reeinstalar my PC, the HDD is lock and I am not accessing and aboslutamente anything.
I have read several pages, various forums across the web and have not been able to find the result. What if I stay clear is that the HDD Password Lock by Ata.
I write here because all you have come to the solution of the problem, only the help of this forum helped me.
Step to tell them and also with Screenshoots my problem:

By MHHD I could extract the 22.BIN, yielding the following:

http://i.minus.com/ibmlYRjbRmFPiP.jpg

I have read about identifying Users Pass and Pass Masters. As purchased by you and watching the 22.BIN sack in conclusion that:

User Pass:

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

http://i.minus.com/ikpHwOVEE9ope.jpg

Master Pass:

57 44 43 57 44 43 57 44 43 57 44 43 57 44 43 57 44 43 57 44 43 57 44 43 57 44 43 57 44 43 57 00

http://i.minus.com/i58CkXNHKHwwc.jpg

If until now acquired information that is valid (please correct me if I make mistakes), then with these data, I could not unlock my HDD.
By accessing the keys in MHHD I always throw the message "Fail", but also'm not sure I used the correct method and the correct way. It has not been clear how I admit you the keys with "ALT GR" and all that ...

Then I found information that Victoria can do. The method is the same as the friend Spildit shared, but I think it was failing on the way to save the key in the file ...
I'll try to Spildit information, as this much clearer copy and paste and save the file that way.
I just wanted to ask if so I have to save the files:

User Password:

http://i.minus.com/isSL1z3cJ7YjT.jpg

Master Password:

http://i.minus.com/ib1UJseSf7Sl4f.jpg

I also show you information that throws me Victoria, and errors when loading the file.
The Victoria I'm running from the Hiren's Boot MiniXp. You can run this way?

Greetings all, many thanks for having been so many years fighting this problem and providing all possible solutions!
I start to realize the shared Spildit tutorial and step them the news. Many Thanks!

I have been pouring over this thread for some time now and i feel I am 1/3 the way so where I need to be but I am not finding the information in the order i need to understand how to proceed. >_<;

We do not know the HDD password applied to the drive, nor has the standard WD Master Pass worked "WDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWDCWD"

Some Information
I am using Ultimate Boot CD V5.3.3 in order to use MHDD32 v4.6
It works.
I can get in and select the appropriate HHD.
It is a WD2500AAJS 250GB SATA HDD.
The Hard drive is mounted into a desktop computer. It is the only HDD on that machine. It also has a single optical drive. (CD) which is also SATA and is discoverable in MHDD
The HDD i am working on has the OS and Boot Sector, so there is no other drive to boot to in order to analyze this HDD in a fully functioning OS. (I am going to bring it to one, later today.)

I am trying to access/create the binary files in order to get the memory dump. This is noted on Page 2 or 3 of this monster thread.

What I am trying to figure out is how to get the batch file listed back on page to into the batch folder in MHDD. Problem is none of the DOS commands, when i ALT + X into the DOS prompt seem to work. I can "TYPE" files to read them, but that is it. I cannot write to existing files or create new ones. (Clearly i am doing something wrong.)

So that is the issue i am at, I have not found specific instructions on how to create the DUMP files in order to see what the Master Password is on this HDD. I would settle for the current user Password.

Now, I am thinking that in order to get that, I am going to need to connect the HDD to a working computer and create/read the Binary files that way. All of the screen shots i am seeing are form working computers.

Any suggestions on where to proceed, here?

What I need:
Create the rom dump file
Read the rom dump file

I feel like with 43 pages of communication dating back to 2009, I should have everything I need but clearly i am missing steps, somewhere.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks very much.

(Solved or slagged, I will post a response for others to learn.)

@astr0path

Make sure you have a 32 bit windows and admin account. If you don't download a copy of Hiren's boot (with mini windows) or any other sort of bootable CD with windows 32 bits (BartPe style). Load from that OS or from your OS with the locked drive attached to the sata port of the motherboard.

- Get a copy of WDR Demo from here :

http://malthus.mooo.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=33

Run as admin, go to options - ports - custom and if you are running under a 32 bit OS with admin priviledges you should see some ports on the winow that will pop up. Select the one you have connected the locked drive to. If your system doesn't boot with the locked drive there, just don't apply power to the drive and let the system boot. Then, when windows is running, connect the power cable to the drive and open WDR demo.

Now go to HDD and select ROYL.

Right click on the window that will apear and do Actions - Clear password.

DONE.

Power off and on the drive. If the drive doesn't have it's service area locked because of the password 8newer drives have) the password should now be gone.


Method 2 - Get a copy of ZU from here :

http://malthus.mooo.com/viewtopic.php?f=95&t=166

Go to the system BIOS and change the SATA ports to IDE COMAPTIBLE mode. Now the SATA ports will be seen by the OS as traditiona primary/sec, etc ...

Try with the locked drive connected to the system :

ZU /P
ZU /S

Password should be gone.

@Spildit

I had to set the SATA to IDE compatible in order for the drives to show up in MHDD. So that is done.

You are suggesting after 43 pages of reading, it May be this simple? (Method 1)

I am going to give this stuff a go and see how that goes.
I can;t thank you enough, even for the quick pointers.

As long as the drive doesn't lock SA access when the ATA password is present, yes, it's that simple. Any of those 2 methods should work.
Method 2 should work even if the SA acess is locked.
Method 1 have a better User Interface.
IF SA access is locked the 43 pages of reading (MHDD Scripting) will fail as well.
As i stated somewhere on this thread, this method is "outdated". It's very coollllll for someone wanting to experiment with the ATA vendor specific commands and for people starting to learn MHDD scripts and how to send ATA specific commands to the drive to get back info from the drive (SA modules or on this case part of a module) but for the end user wanting to unlock the drive the WDR DEMO or ZU tool are way more easy to use.
Regards and let us know if you managed to unlock the drive.

Here is where I am.

I have Hiren's MiniXP running, no problem.

When I boot the system it still asks me to use the master pass or the user pass, or I can bypass that and boot without the HDD. So clearly the disk is there.

In Hiren's, it does not detect the HDD. This includes whether or not I boot it up with the drive powered on or off, set to IDE or not. I also unplugged the CD drive while in Hiren's to prove that it does show that the drive is gone, so it does update automatically.

On the MOBO, I have, only, 3 SATA ports. SATA1(JP1), SATA2 (JP2), SATA(JP3). They are in that order.
HDD is plugged in to SATA1 and CD Drive is plugged in to SATA2.

Anyway, I tried WDR. Just in case I ran it on ALL of the ports (2 * port 2 and 2* port 4). It doesn't create a lot because there is no C:. I go into HD-ROYAL and use the option to clear the password. It says successful for all ports selected.

Password is still there.

I am now using ZU.
Again, the Drive does not show in the miniXP.
I have set the drive to IDE in the BIOS.

I opened a command prompt and currently I have done "ZU /P"
It is showing elapsed time so i have no idea if it is doing anything. At least I know that the app is running if it is refreshing the time.

I am now waiting to see if the time will stop elapsing.
I am at ELAPSED 00:13:00 so I am going to try this again from a fresh reboot.

That is where I am now.

with wdr make sure you select the correct drive. The model and firmware version should apear on the wdr window when you select the royl option.
If it doesn't work then the drive have locked sa access and you can forget about mhdd script as well.

It's weird, I can interact with the drive in MHDD, but I cannot see it in MiniXP or in the WDR.

ZU has been running /p for over an hour now, so i think, without the drive being detected, outside of the BIOS, it is no good, without the password(s).

*Remains hopeful for now*

I will update if I give up.

Update

Nothing we tried worked. Thankfully some one found an e-mail with the HDD User Password so I was able to unlock it and disable the damn thing before it caused any more trouble.

Unfortunately the drive has reverted to RAW. So I can access it now but it looks like it will need a re-image. I am going through some of the Hiren apps to see if there is an app to re-initialize it.

TestDisk is what i am using first.
