Get a caddy/cable we have one at work, a Cable, plugs in to the USB socket/SATA port, and plugs in to the HDD. Can then Format it through windows on an external machine.

Cant find the cable, but you can get a HDD caddy that the HDD sits in and the PC reads it as an external drive.
Trying to find old players. Anyone about? Drop me a PM or reply to this thread:
