USB drive password problem

I have a Sandisk Cruzer (8.02) USB flash drive. I set a password on it in my Apple Mac Mini, and when I used it on my Ubuntu computer I would enter the password and it opened. I never had a problem with the thumb drive until I reloaded my Ubuntu OS 14.04 LTS. Now when I enter my password, nothing happens and the thumb drive
remains locked. Here is the information from the computer for the thumb drive:

Partitioning - M B R
Device - /dev/sbd1
Partition Type - W95 FAT 32 (LBA) (Bootable)
Contents - LUKS Encryption (version 1)-Locked

I would like to solve this password problem without losing its contents.

First make backup of contents on some pc that would be able to work with password.

If I got you right the Ubuntu 14.04 does not. What would i do is to dist-upgrade ubuntu to current, maybe it was solved already.
