Intel 520 SSD can't set password

According to the product brief:


"The new Intel SSD 520 Series offers the best security features of any Intel® Solid-State Drive to date and comes pre-configured with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256 bit encryption capabilities. In the event of theft or loss of your computer, you have the peace of mind that your personal data is secured by an advanced encryption technology."


I have used this feature with an Intel SSD 320 in my ThinkPad W520 laptop. I was able to set a user and master password.


However, when I put my new Intel SSD 520 (SSDSC2CW480A3) into the same laptop, I'm unable to set a user and/or master password.
