View Full Version : Problems Unlocking Western Digital 45GB

02-05-2004, 04:19 PM
I have several western digital 45gig Hard Drives that I have tried to unlock using MHD3. Each time I get the message that my drive is now blank but when I reboot the drive is still locked. I have had no problems using the utility on some seagate 40gigs. I have even tried changing it to slave and master with slave present with no luck.

Would appreciate any ideas on the matter

to check the drive after the MHD3 program comes back and says it has been unlocked?? Try this when the program completes and it says "drive is now blank" wait 20-25 minutes on the A>prompt before rebooting and see if its unlocked. I had the same issues and the only solution that worked for me was to wait the extra 20-30 minutes and reboot. It has come back unlocked everytime since I started using that process. Post results.

Thanks for your input. I did what you suggested and it worked perfectly on all my drives. I appreciate the help.
