    I just found an 1.8 IDE external enclosure. I just want to verify before I purchase it, if I make it an external drive, will I be able to access/fdisk/low level format the disk so I can use it? Because as far as I research the password is inside the Hard Disk.

    Ok, I have finally been able to access my hard disk but hdparm is not able to unlock it... Google for the default manufacturer master password and it says 32 "t" but it didn't work. ***sigh***

    [root@localhost ~]# hdparm -I /dev/sdc
    /dev/sdc:
    ATA device, with non-removable media
    Model Number: SAMSUNG HS08XJC
    Serial Number: S18EJ16PB06838
    Firmware Revision: GR100-01
    Security:
    Master password revision code = 65534
    supported
    enabled
    locked
    not frozen
    not expired

    [root@localhost ~]# hdparm --user-master u --security-unlock p
    /dev/sdc security_password="p" /dev/sdc:
    Issuing SECURITY_UNLOCK command, password="p", user=user
    SECURITY_UNLOCK: Input/output error

    [root@localhost ~]# hdparm --user-master u --security-disable p
    /dev/sdc security_password="p" /dev/sdc:
    Issuing SECURITY_DISABLE command, password="p", user=user
    SECURITY_UNLOCK: Input/output error

    [root@localhost ~]# hdparm --user-master u --security-unlock tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt
    /dev/sdc security_password="tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt" /dev/sdc:
    Issuing SECURITY_UNLOCK command, password="tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt", user=user
    SECURITY_UNLOCK: Input/output error

    My Hard Disk is:
    Samsung
    Model: HS08XJC
    HDD P/N: HS08XJC/D
    lba 153,301,488 80gb n1c
    S/N: S18EJ16PB06838

    Any help extended is highly appreciated. I'm open for any suggestion

    Btw, I have downloaded UltimateBootCD but none of the tools there was able to detect the HD and wasn't able to unlock it. Aside from hdparm, I have tried nwipe (dwipe) but it error out around 4 hours of running... shred also work but still didn't unlock it.

    Looks like you only tried the user password...did you try the master option?
