My Crucial BX100 SSD is locked. I can’t unlock it with the correct (!) user password.
So I’ve searched all over google, and read in a thread that I should try to unlock it with the master password.
Unfortunately I haven’t found the master ATA password for Crucial drives on the internet.
Does someone know the ATA master password for Crucial drives?
I want to use the command:
hdparm --user-master m --security-unlock PASS /dev/sda
Or maybe someone knows another solution that could unlock my SSD.
Background: I wanted to secure erase my SSD drive. I've booted from a Knoppix Live CD and used the command:
hdparm --user-master u --security-set-pass PASS /dev/sda
After that I wanted to actually secure erase it with:
hdparm --user-master u --security-erase PASS /dev/sda
But it said the following with some and some more
00’s) at the end:
Bad/missing sense data, sb: 70 00 05 00 00 00 00 0a 51 e0 00 21 04 …
Maybe important to know: Before that my drive has been frozen. I solved that by putting the system in Sleep Mode. After that the frozen-state has gone.
Maybe that led to the locked-state? I don’t know.
I’m a little bit desperate right here, hope you can help.
EDIT Mar 1-st:
I've found this thread today where someone has the exact same problem. In his case - they assume - there are controller-problems. Maybe i'll confront Crucial with that info in the next days.
And for further information: I've tried the following commands, too:
hdparm --user-master m -- security-disable NULL /dev/sda
hdparm --user-master m --security-erase-enhanced NULL /dev/sda
Bad/missing sense data, sb[ ]: 70 00 05 00 00 00 00 0a 51 e0 00 21 04
