Reply with quote
 
Hey all, I purchased a HD from someone. Well, now I know why price was soooooo good. Turns out, the drive must've been locked. When I pop it in a modded machine to format it just keeps looping back to the blue AID screen that asks me if I want to format it.

If I try to boot it without AID disk, I end up just getting error code 06.

I am pretty convinced this HD was locked and someone parted out their mod and never bothered to unlock the drive. It's a WD drive. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can salvage the drive?

I know there is an online program out there that can do it, but they force you to pay 60.00 to use it. Not worth it since I already have 40 bucks invested in the drive. I have no idea what program was used to lock the drive as the original seller never responded to emails.

Thanks!

Very interesting.

I installed it, now I am going to pop the other HD into my PC and see what I can accomplish. I see that there are some purchase options so am wondering if it's going to make me pay once I hit a certain point. However their price is much much less than the other company.

I'll post my results if I go through with it.

Thanks a million for the info...

It's well worth the headache for that price, I've seen that drive as low as $80 and as high as $100. Man I hope you get it unlocked, good luck.. Smile

I am going to try to salvage first. If I can get it unlocked I am going to use it in a future mod. But, if I end up not getting the time to tinker with it I'll pop it up on Ebay for you to buy if you are still interested/need it.

I would go to WDC.com and check the warranty status. If it is still in warranty just send it back to WD and they will send you a new (refurbished) one, and all it costs you is shipping to get it there.

Unfortunately, the warranty was expired by a measly month when I first attempted to use the drive. I did contact WD and since the warranty started during the manufacturing month and not the actual month purchased they told me as long as I had the receipt they would RMA it for me. But, since I purchased the drive second hand so to speak, obviously I do not have the original sales receipt.

Well, since you are the buyer I really wasn't worried about your rep. I have a relatively new member account here so would figure ppl would be more comfortable with me listing via my Ebay accnt rather than blind trust Wink

well, i figured since you started out trying to get it to work, and not selling it, i pretty much assumed you did indeed have it. Good thinking though, as i am one of the more 'over looking' buyers on this site..

Hey dangermouse, I finally got around to running that app. It's running as we speak and states that there is approximately 74mins to go and it should be unlocked.

Cost me $19.95, which is much better than the 60+ dollars the other company wanted to do the same thing!!

At least now I'll have a spare unlocked 200GB HD laying around...lol.

If anyone is having the same issues and doesn't want to try a hotswap or anything like that, I highly recommend this easy to use application. I know that the HD manufactures have their own tools that would probably do the same. I wish they made them available to the general public.

Well, the app finished and it actually did unlock the drive.

I highly recommend this program to anyone who needs to unlock a drive. What's nice is depending on the size of the HD the price to use the app changes. So, you don't get stuck spending $20 on a small drive.

Total runtime for my 200GB HD was about 1.5 hours.

I wish I would have used this app a several days ago when I did a mod for someone. I could have made a few extra bucks by furnishing the HD as they originally requested. Instead, they went to Best Buy and bought a Seagate 200GB for almost $120
