    This fuckin hard drive aint workin right. Plug it in, hook up the USB wire, UNLOCK comes up, I put in my password, and it just keeps acting like its searching for flies, but nothing comes up.

    If the drive was fucked, would the UNLOCK program run? Is that just on a chip and the actual HD isn't communicating w/ the board inside? Would getting knocked around have throw something off kilter and I can dig into the thing to fix it?

    I have another one, but ripping the 2 all apart and swapping the discs so I can try to copy the files is a last resort.

    Thank you for any help.

    Fuck you for the nonsense comments I'm sure to get.

    The unlock is probably built into the firmware of the controller. You can remove the drive and add it to a computer and see if you can read it.

    There is a lot of porn on it, but the important stuff is videos/pics of my kid that I had to dump off my computer before I got him his own hard drive.

    Lightly oil the winker if the dry cram is unsuccessful.
    (by the way I learned this from you sensei, and it has served me well in many situations.)

    I'm not sad.

    I'm not old.

    I'm not lonely.

    I love living in an apartment in the middle of everything so I can walk to it.


    Why U so mad, bro? :smile:

    Good luck, I had a Seagate external HD controller go bad, and when I popped the hard drive into another enclosure it wouldn't let me access my files. Like the shit was encrypted, so I ended up just reformatting the drive, and using it internally in my desktop.

    do you have an extra HD bay in your computer?

    if you hear a spinning sound with the occasional scratch then you are fucked
