I wonder if this bug was added in the new firmware.
Unfortunately, I think you will have to RMA the drive.
Do you know where i should look for a RMA contact in germany?
Was your SSD connected directly to a SATA port in your motherboard when you changed the password?
Some user in this forum had the same problem when he set a password with his SSD connected with a USB-SATA adapter.
This probably wont work but try an empty password. Also you should try your password, or something close to it again, maybe you made a typo when you entered the User password ?. If your password doesnt work then the drive is bricked,
You can contact technical support for an RMA authorization number.

The SSD was in the normal hdd bay of the Lenovo x200 all the time.
Today i have even tried to use the SSD in another Fujitsu PC at work but still it does not accept the password.
I have tried with possible typos but it did not help.
I will apply for a RMA.
