Leave alone the fact that it is a 7200.12 for the moment.

There are two ATA passwords levels. User and Master (or Max and High)
Which one is set on the disk?

Is the scope "unlocking the disk" or "unlocking the disk AND recover it's current contents"?

In certain conditions it should be possible to issue a Safe Erase ATA command.
