Windows was unable to complete the format!

I have a USB external disk. Disk management says the file system is RAW. I'm running Windows7, and everytime I try to format the disk I get the message:"Windows was unable to complete the format". I tried numerous suggestions, all with the same outcome. Is there ant way to convert RAW to NTFS?

  1. You could get yourself a copy of Diskeeper or some free-format utility to see if you can get better success with them?

    You could also try taking your external drive out of it's caddy and installing it into your computer, then formatting with Win7's format tools.
