wd 2.5 scorpio 160gb sata model wd1600bevt does not read...

Hi in my dell comes this disc:

wd1600bvet 160gb sata

One stupid in my job has fixed password to the disc and does not remember it.

I have tried wdclear in order to low level format but is says always error.

is there an posibility to recover at least the disc and make it usable again ? Or I have a brick?

Hello, WD SATA HDDs don't support password protection natively, it must be something that the BIOS or a program on your computer is doing. Check if you don't mind losing your files, you can use DLG to write zeros.
