I don't see the command named security erase prepare and security erase
unit. I can choose prepare to erase unit and the program says command
complete, but when i then select erase unit i get the error "command
rejected by drive" again. Seems as if this way doesn't work. Are there any
other ways to solve the problem?

UNIT commands. This will erase all data from the disk.
