Hi guys,

Looking for startup resources a rare automotive drive I need to unlock.

It's an HGST HEJ423232H9E300 with FW Version A200, but any capacity drive should do

I have A180 but need A200

Cheers!!

If you have no luck, try replacing the drive with a WD, then retrieve the password from the WD. I have seen this done at the HDD Oracle with good results. Hopefully the password will not be unique to each drive.

That’s a good idea! Why didn’t I think of that? :-)
