Hello

I'm new on this site, but I'll try to list all the details of my situation.
I bought a Medion MIM2280 laptop from some guy on the internet, which has a Samsung HM640JJ HDD in it. He sold me the laptop quite cheap, because he said it's "broken", but after some research, I found out that actually, the HDD was locked by an ATA password. Till now, I didn't even know that you can put a password on a HDD, so obviously I had to do a little bit of research. I tried all kind of "solutions" found on the internet, but none of them worked. Yesterday, I came across this forum, and learned that the ATA password shoud be hidden somewhere in the hex code...so I gave it a try.
I booted HBCD from an USB, and started Mini Windows XP. Then I used Samsung Repair Tool to access the hex code of the HDD, but then, I bumped into another problem: it's all zeroes, and I have no idea why or what that means. So if anyone thinks that can help me, please do!

Did you READ the module ?
Because it should display SECURITY at the start of the module.

Step-By-Step guide for unlocking SAMSUNG :

http://www.hddoracle.com/viewtopic.php?f=116&t=875

(Please be aware that this thread is for WD so you should open another thread if you need further assistence).

When you READ the module on the Samsung do you get a green checkmark on it ?
Go get a module from a similar unlocked drive and copy back to your drive or fix it by hand.

Yes, I've read the module (the green checkmark is there), and I don't know why it's not at the start of the module, or why the hex is completely empty.
Where I could find a module for my drive and how to copy it into the HDD? (sorry for being such a noob, but I'm kind of new into this stuff)

Does your drive have a module B2 - PROFILE ?
If so try to read that and dump it.

PC-3000 or MRTLabs tool should work without any major issue on those drives ....

Sorry for not responding sooner, but I had to deal with another problem - my laptop started displaying some colored lines and the screen was splitted in four. It seems like the gpu wasn't cooling properly and it partially disconnected from the motherboard. So I connected it back on and changed the thermal conductive silicon pad.
Now, back to the main problem: my drieve doesn't have a B2 - PROFILE, and I've already tried to work with SHT, but it didn't work. Now, I've downloaded MRTLab Pro, but since I've never used it and it's not actually a "common user" tool, I could really use some help.

Thanks!

MrtLab is a software and hardware combination. If you don't have the hardware then forget it!
I think it is time for you to make your own thread and ask questions there.
Sorry but this thread is for Western Digital only! Not Samsung!

Maybe the BIOS is HASHING the password or maybe you need to add spaces up untill it reaches 32 characters (1234+28 spaces).

You can get victoria for windows and use that instead :
