hey guys,

I have pulled bunch of HDDs from LG home theater system to be used in PCs.
However, when i plug these HDDs to my computer and initialize the HDD it give me the same error message for all my the HDD.
I found out that these hard drives have Max security locks on them.
I was wondering if anyone know how to unlock the security settings on them.
30 x Seagate Pipeline 250GB HDD.
