I have a password protected disk image whose password I forgot. If there is any way of resetting the password or to recover the password?

If you're lucky, you stored the password in your keychain.
The Keychain Access utility will tell you what it is.
If you didn't, you are out of luck.

Not really, unless you have access to an NSA supercomputer or something /forums/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif
DU's disk utility uses AES 128 (or maybe even higher now) encryption - to all practical intents it is uncrackable. And there is no way to reset it. Sorry.
