Default Unlock password protected SSDs

hi, i have a bunch of ssds, and those are password protected and unusable,
are there ways to unlock them?

i dont know what data is on it, and its fine to reformat them.

hope someone has ideas to unlock the ssds

if you don't need them data, does it let you totally do a sector wipe?

no, tryed serval tools to reformat, but getting messages as I/O errors, or not accesable device, and other warnings

so no, it doesnt let me do a sector wipe sadly,

only thing the ssds to, is it detects as a 128 gb ssd drive, from samsung with its type nr, when u try to boot of the disk it asks for password, or screen goes black.

there is a command that makes drives factory-reset,
you need to send it direct - no usb adapters, and you probably have to use linux.

thanks, but sadly not, psid revert is not supported on the drives,
i dont get why they dont work, the samsung magician software does detect the ssds, the written tbs and temperature is readble, but i cant format the drives or something in that way, so yeah, no psid revert support, no format possible, weird never liked samsung, but ok,

tryed serveral format applications, no result, try install windows on it, not working.

That is a waste of both your and our time.
You have not told us what drive you are trying this on.
In any case you can't format or do anything with the data on the drive before you do a psid revert.
A Linux machine with hdparm and sedutil are probably the best ways to go at it.

Probably an absurdly extreme measure, but have you tried running a FW update ISO from the manufacturer? As far as I can guess, those should reset the password?
