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?

Try deleting the partition. Re-create it and try formatting it once again.
