Hi guys .
Last month when ı try to format my pc ı decided to format my hdd (I have SSD+HDD).
My hdd's brand is WESTERN DİGİTAL. After the format when ı try to open my pc my hdd ask me a password.
But ı dont set this password.I tried some things to erase this password but ı couldnt.
ACtually ı find a one program (CCTK) for erase the password for special dell pc .
But when ı write the code CCTK is tring to apply code for my SDD not HDD :(
I tried to change code a few times to applied for hdd but ı didnt success.(There is a pic below)
İs there any way to erase this password?

There are some photos below about the error.
(Also My Pc Dell İnspiron 7567 Gaming LAPTOP)

Thank u for everything
Best Regards;
Şevket ŞİMŞEK

If you're just trying to make the drive work again, and definitely don't need any of the data from it, you can just install WD Smartware software and do a secure reset of the device.

That software you're playing with has nothing to do with anything related to WD encryption.

What did you use to FORMAT your PC ?

I would bet that you did use some tool that attempted the securiy erase of your drive by setting the ATA password, issue the security erase prepare and security erase unit.

I would bet that something went wrong, like the drive have bad blocks (in big quantity) or you didn't wait for the erase to finish (and the drive was still on BSY when you power it off) leaving you "locked" out of the drive by the password set by the erasing program.

If you did not use any sort of smartware or WD password / encryption software on your drive to "format" or modify the drive in any way then the password set on the drive is a standard ATA password and not a encrypted related key.

If that is the case you can find what password does the software that you use to rease / format the drive uses to lock the drive or you can bypass the password by reading this GREAT (absolutly fantastic) topic about the subject : - http://www.hddoracle.com/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=2353 !!!

Regards and good luck.

I told you ...

If you don't want to read my fantastic guide just get WDMarvel DEMO and use it to unlock the drive !

Instructions are on my fantastic article about the subject so you can skip to the WDMarvel part and use the software to try to unlock your drive !

Ok, your BIOS did set the ATA password for security erase then.

Use the mentioned methods to remove the password.

WDMarvel can remove the ATA password of your drive by reading it from drive RAM (module 029 and use that password to unlock the drive.

You will eed a system that can run WDMarvel DEMO. If you have 32 bit windows the better if not you need to install the certificate so that it will run the low level I/O driver as signed.

If you do have Windows XP 32 use that as it's the best for this sort of software. Make sure you have BIOS for that SATA port/HDD in IDE/COMPATIBLE mode, run WDMarvel and check if it can see the drive with "detect". If so use the option to remove the password with universal method.

Done.

Also it's way better to use a desktop computer with a drive connected to that same port, run the system, swap the drive with the one that you want to unlock and do it.

You might want to check first with WDMarvel on some systems to see if you can run it and properly detect a port with a drive on it prior to jump to the locked drive blindly withouit knowing how the software work ...

Or if you want to ship the drive to me and pay for unlocking + shipping i do have my unlocking service as well ...
