then either there is an unkown default PW set. Or the master password was changed whilst turning on the ATA password protection.

If the password was changed you have no chance except by remembering it, either the user or the master password.

The master password is the one you used when you the password was set by you or the client. If no one remembers it the disk is good as a door stopper.
