    use fdisk to partion the drive, then format. also make sure u set up the jumpers correctly, and set it up in bios, detect all drives

    Connect the drive as a slave then boot up Windows and go to:

    Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Disk Management.

    You will see that you have all the tools to partition and format you drives right there. There are wizards and help to guide you.
