If it's RAW and you don't care about the contents...I would simply delete all structures on it and then format it.
Both Disk Management and the XP CD routinely can access a RAW drive, IME.
But...the appearance of a RAW file system...is an indication that the hard drive has problems. I wouldn't bother formatting it before I ran the long/extended manufacturer's disk diagnostic on it.
