Any idea about ?


Have you set up the password for this drive?

If yes, you need to remove it before you can see or copy file or format it.

If after the drive is visible. Password removed.

You do not need any extra utilities.

You could just format it in Disk Management under XP into either FAT32 or NTFS.
