I have never ran into that problem. Have you tried booting into option 4 and typing ATAPWD To view the locked status? You can unlock with a master password there also. You may need to print out the eeprom and try to unlock it manually.
I tried option 4 but it would'nt accept the password. yesterday I went online and for $4.95 A-FF hddunlock was able to unlock it for me. Now I can do it from scratch again. Thanx for the post.
