WD Mybook World Edition Dead, Recover password protected data

I have an older Mybook World that stopped running.  No responce to any interaction with the button at all.  I opened the case and found no visual damage.  When I took out the drive and connected to a sata case it will run.  Mac disk utilities shows partitions for each of my password protected usernames but, I cant read them.  Is there a software that I can download to get access to the data, some kind of emulator or something?  If not can I find an old worldbook and use that to translate the information?
