|Not sure you can do it easily in Windows. The normal way is to simply partition it. It will leave it unformatted. Linux live cd can do that. There are ways to get around that in windows.If you attach it to a sata or ide to CF adapter it should show as a normal hard drive. Otherwise you need to do what they call flip bit.|
Diskpart might do it also.
