Question about Hitachi HTS723232A7A364 320 GB SATA II Hard Drive
If your Windows OS is the problem, your ok, if its the HDD itself, your out of luck.
I have called Hitachi and Toshiba about the Admin password for the HDD and was told, on multiple occasions, if I've set a password, for one of their Hard Disk Drives and forgot it, than its either useless, or going to have to be reset to factory default and lose all data.
