Default Unlocking a hard drive?

I have a hardrive from an old Xbox. Anybody know how to unlock it to use it in a computer?
Its just a standard IDE hard drive, but I can access it in Windows or use it because its locked. Nor can I put it back in the Xbox to get the password to unlock it, as the Xbox is dead.

Here's one way. Pretty hard though.

Maybe this?

Have you tried google?

You realize it's an ~8gb harddrive right? it's pretty much useless to be honest... Also, I'm pretty sure it's a 5200rpm, so it's slow too.

Softmod the xbox, and go into the options and unlock it. Again, pointless for the size and all.
