easy, get a hex editor.

a few are
HxD (free)
hex workshop
WinHex

etc..

file-->new ;)

then the keyboard scan codes are edited in I assume.. I am sure there was a post about this here or HDD Oracle. Do a search for terms like:
keyboard scan codes hex Victoria password

Here is a list of scan codes:
http://www.users.on.net/~fzabkar/MSKeyLog.TXT

For example, if your password were "ABC", then the "make" scan codes would be 1E 30 2E.

You would then build a 32 byte password file as follows:

Code:
Offset(h) 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F

00000000  1E 30 2E 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
00000010  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

... or ...

Code:
Offset(h) 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F

00000000  1E 00 30 00 2E 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
00000010  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

... or ...

Code:
Offset(h) 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F

00000000  00 1E 00 30 00 2E 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
00000010  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

IIRC those are some of the possible formats, but there may be others.

Victoria for Windows allows you to answer the password challenge with a file containing your password as opposed to typing the characters themselves.

Please read my guide here :

and don't forget to press "scan pci" on pio mode using victoria first

Hey thank you for that guide but my problem is with identifying the password in the hex string I started at 00000030 9th position in and selected 32 bytes in the string, I saved it in a hex editor and went through the unlocking process in victoria from a password file. when I click on unlock (yes in user mode and high security) I keep getting the error "error after DISPWD"

Hi there !

Sorry, i didn't pay close attention to your screen capture. 00 bit is set for the ATA password value, meaning the drive is not locked with ATA password.

What is the problem with the drive ? When you run victoria on it and you do PIO mode andthen you scan PCI and selct the drive and check the passport does it state that the drive is locked with ATA password ?

Please post a screen capture of victoria.

Best regards.

Hey Guys,

I couldn't get the MHDD scripts posted in this thread to dump my drive's password. So, I gave up on that idea and finally found the latest version of ZU.exe online. It cleared my hard drive password, and I was able to use it again. So, I wanted to release a Magic Boot Disk image which includes MHDD and ZU for everyone out there who wants to clear the password and doesn't care about losing all existing data.

Instructions:

    Download the attached ISO.
    Burn to a CD.
    Connect Western Digital drive you want to unlock directly to the motherboard.
    Boot into the BIOS.
    Find the section that configures the SATA mode. Mine was under "Integrated Peripherals".
    Set SATA Mode to "Legacy IDE".
    Set SATA as Primary Channel.
    Save BIOS settings.
    Reboot.
    Boot from the burned CD.
    Pick the default option.
    Run the following command:
Code:
zu /p


The drive has now been unlocked. You can reformat the drive and use it.

@Yanoudak, that appears to be the output of the ATA Identify Device command (Russians refer to this as "passport" for some quaint reason). The password is not stored here.

If ZU can't do it for you, then I don't know any other DIY method.

Can this help me find my master or user password of my ATA Locked ST1000LM024 (Samsung)?

Don't need any of the data whatsoever, just need the drive for my modified Xbox 360.

I've been at this for almost four days now, not sure what else to try. My PC reads the drive perfectly with MHDD, PartedMagic, etc. I just don't remember my user password from years ago and none of the master passwords seem to be working. I've read it should be 100% possible to unlock/erase this if my security is in HIGH and not MAX – which it is. Any guidance would be truly appreciated.

If not, I'll just chuck this thing against a sewer drain as I am so damn tired of troubleshooting this thing lol :lol:

a security erase should do it for you i think. I cannot interpret how MHDD or other sw could read a pw locked drive perfectly (without the pw of course).

Hi pepe. Thanks for the reply here. I mean, I've tried everything. MHDD just keeps saying fail. I think I tried every command there is lol

I believe every command asks for some type of password unfortunately. Let me know if you can guide me on this. I'll get my PC and HDD up and running with MHDD again!
