I had this problem. I had to put the hard drive into a computer running windows and format the whole thing using disk management under administrative tools under control panel. Though, I ran into that problem after trying to use the wrong format option, heh. It's probably possible to use a newer version of fdisk or cfdisk or the like in Linux on a pc to format it as well.

You could try using ps2fdisk, prior to formatting, from, put it on a usb flash drive. You can mount it using mount -t vfat /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc/part1 /mnt/usb (after creating that directory).
