I have a password-locked Samsung HM321HI/D (locked "high" not "maximum"). I have NO IDEA what's on it. I'd like to use the drive but haven't been able to unlock it for free. I have never been able to find a download link for firmware for it, however, datarecoverydonors.com will SELL me the original firmware for $9.50, but will flashing the firmware wipe the DCO area (thus taking off the dang password)? And/or can I even flash firmware to a locked Samsung drive? Other info: ZU.exe can unlock Western Digital drives in a flash but my Samsung from Hell isn't supported. I've tried MHDD with the only three "master" passwords I could google up: tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt idrive xty3fgds2h32j4kd02k9rfgep36435 but no luck. A-FF Repair Station says it can unlock it for $49.95, but a new drive only costs forty bucks, lol... Other googled suggestions that didn't work: Erase with either Darik's, HDDerase or from Linux using this: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda conv=notrunc All worthless. Anyone have advice?
