I have HDD password protected hard drive (Seagate ST320LT007) which dies recently, most probably because of damaged electronics.
I would like to buy new one and replace demaged electronic with workingone from new disk.
I've read in a couple of places (here and here) that password is stored in hard drive firmware and also somewhere on the disk itself and it is possible to unlock such hard drive with dedicated software.
But what in case when I know the password, but electronic has been demaged and it has been then replaced with new-one? Are there any chances to succesfuly recover/unlock such disk?
