Only if you originally locked it using Config Magic. Then you can unlock it with the password TEAMASSEMBLY, and some computer tools (check tutorials). If you locked it using evox or anything else... congratulations with your paperweight.

you may try your luck using ATAPWD to wipe the disk using a all space(0x20) master password. Some brand of HD has this master password when they are out of the factory.

if you read that closer he already answered your question.
Also if you go to my site (in my sig) and head over to the tutorials topic I have an excellent writeup on how HDD locking actually works.

so if im clear on this, i can use atapwd to "start fresh" with that HD?
Pretty much it's worth a try, but it may not work.

I'll pay to have them shipped to me for more experimentation (I've got a writeup on my efforts to unlock the Xbox Hard Dries on my site), think of it as a donation to the cause smile.gif

This is verry interesting...

Which brand of drive have you seen this work for?
