Continuing the discussion from My HDD is locked and wont unlock:
The same thing happened to me. Im still searching for solution. I hope WD can provide solutions for this inaccessible WD drive. Now what I want is just to reformat and use it again but all WD tools said it it locked. Now I’m also angry – for the loss of all my very important work-related files and for the waste of money in the purchase of Passport which is now useless.
