    Sorry, this password I created when I did the setup. Also I don't want to save the data, I want to erase it and get it back to when I took it out of the package.

Was this a BIOS password? (did you have to type a password to boot the laptop into Windows?) If so the password will be a firmware based password that is built into the hard drive, you will need to send to a data recovery company to recover ( are cheap and good) but if sending to New Zealand is problematic just google local data recovery.

    Right, now I'm with you. So this is a Lacie Porsche drive? There should be an option in the software to reformat the drive, since the lock encrypts your files it will need to be reformatted. If you can't find the option try it on another machine without the software installed and just repartition the drive using the Windows disk managment tools or the Mac disk utilities.

Forgot my password in cmos harddisk

The hard disk password is setup using the BIOS configuration, this password is stored on the hard disk and there are no backdoor passwords you can use except the password you created and if you know this password then you can remove it permanently using the BIOS configuration. Moving this hard drive into another laptop will not work either, it won't allow access to this hard disk.
Your only option is to purchase a new hard drive to replace the one with the password.
If you also created a BIOS password, you need this password to get into the BIOS configuration.

All these passwords are created by users to prevent unauthorized access into the laptop and hard disk.

Dont remeber my password

If the password you forgot is the user password, reinstalling the operating system will help you. If the password you forgot is the bios password(one which should be entered before boot up), you could reset it by removing and resetting the button cell present in the mother board.
