Try to format the hard disc. First quick format and If it is not working then slow format and It should work.

I believe you need to use diskpart command to clean the disk, with the help of this command you will format your disk easily.

What operating system are you using? Not all "older' OS can support a drive that large! So if you are using XP, no good! YOu may have to switch to a different type of formatting......not MBR, but GPT.
