More about please
  1. Did passport Essential in System disk?
    If not, you can reinstall system.
  2. all data on the drive would have been lost. to format follow this:

    Gist of it is:
    1. Run unlock.exe from the virtual Cd
    2. Purposely fail at unlocking it 5 times.
    3. Unplug/turn off the passport and plug it back in.
    4. The auto-unlock autorun app will come.
    5. Purposely fail at unlocking it 5 times again.
    6. Check off "I understand that reformatting my drive will delete all of my data", that should un-grey "Format"
    7. Format.

    I'm not sure if you can skip steps 3/4/5. It seems to indicate you can't.

    Good luck.
