    I've only ever encountered drive locking when dealing with school computers and Xbox 1. In both cases, they're locked for security reasons. Where did you get that locked drive from?

    Ah, a "digital set top box". I've never seen one before so I can't offer any advice, and my quick google searches haven't turned up anything useful.
