you likely need to do an opal reset using the PSID printed on the drive.

The command line software sed-util can help you.

You can try running a clean command on the drives through DiskPart.

So you did the following?

>diskpart

> list disk

> sel disk X (where X is your bitlocker drive number)

>clean

Completed isn't a valid message in diskpart. Do you have a screen shot?

now every time i type clean nothing happens and the drive drops out of diskpart but remains in device manager
have to restart windows for it to show again,retry and the same thing happens

yep keep dropping out just before saying succeeded

Yeah, drive is read-only until you do an opal reset. You are only seeing the hardware preboot section.

Look into sed-util.

It won't make a difference, this is a hardware issue. The drive won't erase under any OS until reset.

You need some microsoft redist to run it. Let me find it for you.

Ok, I would install this and this, and then follow this:

not detecting the drives,im about to just give up on these drives,i would even just ship them to someone who knows what to do if there willing to fix them for me

got it to detect but its not an opal supported drive so it wont let me run it on the drive from what im seeing the program is for 2.5 ssds only not m.2

so far ive tried several methods to wipe these drives including opal and using different chipset raid cards including server grade raid cards hoping to create a raid just for the purpose of removing partitions and nothing so far seams to work,and cant seem to find the firmware for these anyone so i can try and reflash them wich as of yet is the only other thing i can think of,any input would be helpful
