How to password protect (NOT encrypt) a portable HDD

I know there are a lot of good programs that will allow you to encrypt part or even all of the files/folders on a portable HDD. I am looking for a simple way to password protect the whole HDD so that if it is attached to any computer, a password is needed to access it. I know that is not as 'good' as encryption', but that is all I need. TIA.
