What if you swap a circuit board from a non-locked drive of
the same make and firmware version?

Perhaps it's locked because you're not supposed to be able
to access the data.

With a large hammer.

Those passwords are put there to stop thieves from getting to one's data or
from having use of one's HDD if stolen. There is no way to get around it,
it's hard-coded into the HDD.

If my ThinkPad ever gets stolen I expect to see a similar post asking how to
get past a HDD pasword on a 320GB 7.2K SATA 3.0 HDD here.... The rest of the
machine won't be of much use either as it has a non-replaceable embedded
security chip that renders the motherboard useless if it's not given the
correct password also....

Some laptops just rock! Others are like any other home appliance,
tranferable without the owners consent. Most theives don't know the
difference beteen the two types.

Contact the owner and ask them for the password.

I started searching here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance...ogy_Attachment

and found this link, as an example. it mentions a few possibilities.

http://www.rockbox.org/lock.html

To "Secure Erase" a drive, in the hope of unlocking it, you
could try here. Secure Erase would remove all the data, but then
you might be able to use the drive for something else. Read all
the documentation, before using it.
