- Seagate ST310014A master password?

Just been trying to unlock an Xbox drive to use on a very old PC that
won't support the newer high density drives.
Unfortunately the mainboard and EEPROM are long since gone, so does
anyone know of a way to force the "Secure Erase" option as the data on
the drive is unimportant.
FYI the Seagate drive's serial number is 5JRBK2GV and both the master
and user passwords are enabled.

I think your only chance is to get a copy of SeaTools and see if it will
let you proceed without unlocking the drive. I have my doubts, however,
as a security mechanism that would permit someone to erase the drive
while in place doesn't seem very secure. In fact, if it's designed
properly, there would be no way that software could override the lock.
