Why won't my ipod let me format it

Specs: Windows 7
I am able to delete the partition on my iPod. I can also format it. However, I've been trying to use it as a USB drive for a portable linux system. However, when I attempt to use Ubuntu's system disk creator on it, it fails to format the drive and returns a code 1 error. Does apple control their ipods with a magic chip or something?

Yes. Unfortunately, Steve Jobs was the only one that knew the secret of the magic chips and he took that knowledge to the grave with him. We'll never be able to format any iPod ever again.
