Locked SA access when password is present.

Use WDMarvel instead.

Method 2 - Universal.

If not you will need to block SA access and edit module 02 and write it back whithout the drive loading to RAM the locked firmware.

HOT swap with unlocked compatible drive will do as well.

Either you figure out what is the password that RedoBackup sets by contacting them, for example (i assume RedoBackup did something like secure erase on the target drive) or you get some tools/scripts to read the password set ON YOUR OWN disk (instead of using passwords from drives of other people).

You can use free tools like HDDSuperTool - http://www.hddoracle.com/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1327 - to read module 02 and figure out the password, or you can use MHDD script as explained on this thread or you can pay $15 for 30 days use of WDMarvel and unlock the drive with one click :

Regards and good luck.

Spildit, thanks for your time.
I have put a bios password and I know it & I can enter the bios and change settings, but the password doesn't work with the HDD.
I read here that the redo backup factory reset does not put a password to any HDD

actually the interface when i boot is from Dell Company exactly like this pic (but different serial)
http://www.online-unlock.com/UserFiles/ ... d_595B.gif

i'm going to use your suggested tools as well as other tools suggested in the link above and see what will happen.
I really appreciate your help.

https://sourceforge.net/p/redobackup/di ... /dcebd388/

two aggreed with your suggestion by using MHDD

http://hddguru.com/download/software/mh ... 4.6iso.zip

thank you so muck for helping me.
i am really happy my drive worked again.

i tried the MHDD softwre (i found it in heren boot cd),

two people used the reset in redobackup and had the same issue, but one of them could review the source code of (reset in redo bckup) and found the password to be RESET, but this password could only be used in MHDD

and i did as they tried.

thank you very much for helping me, thanks to the open source philosophy, without it we would be slaves to the big companies where encryption is used for bad technical purposes.

and thanks to all whom support any open source project.

You could had used the MHDD script as explained here on the start of this thread and you would get the password from the WD HDD drive firmware (mod 02).
At any rate congratulations for your unlocked drive !!!

Has anyone ever even tried this with HDDSuperTool, with either the dump mod 02 script, or the dump mod 42 script for the older drives? And if they have, has anyone paid any attention to the screen output from those commands? :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
Feed you like babies I have, and yet no one notices :roll:

Hey people,

Just to inform you that I have successfully unlocked a 2.5" WD HDD with zu.exe

WD3200BUCT-63TWBY0

Motherboard: Intel Board i946 (with C2D E6600 and 2x Samsung 1gb DDR2 667Mhz)
SATA Mode: Legacy
Boot from USB

The other drive I was trying to unlock (wd 500gb) and asked for help in my previous post is unusable - first sector (literally first) is bad, MBR is damaged and irreparable. Actually, it is unlocked and functional, but it is impossible to create a partition

Thanks

If the drive were working properly, you should be able to write to the bad sector and the drive should then reallocate LBA 0 to a spare sector. Are you able to read other sectors? You could use a disc editor such as DMDE.

Re: Unlocking ATA Password for Western Digital

October 22nd, 2016, 17:22

I didn't try too much. I even have problems with disk initialization - first GPT and then convert to MBR. After that, I am able to make a partition, but it's impossible to format it.

Thanks for the DMDE, but I doubt I will try anything else

My next task is to unlock a Seagate 250gb (st3250310as)
Wish me luck

I know that this is an older thread but I have a WD Sporpio Blue hard drive Model: WD1600BEVT-75ZCT2 that is password protected. I have no idea what the user or Master passwords are. I've tried several things that I have read and do have the 22.bin file. I just don't know how to properly read it and I have tried several hex viewers. Any help is appreciated. I've attached my 22.bin file but changed the ext to .txt to be able to upload it.
