Alternatively, you could use the diskpart utility from the command prompt. Open the command prompt and enter diskpart. Once you're in the diskpart utility, type list disk and identify the disk number corresponding to the hard drive (just check it's size). Enter select disk X where X is the number of that disk previously identified. From there, simply enter the clean command to destroy every partitions on it. Once this is done, go in your My Computer and try to access the drive, then it'll asks you to format it before using it. Accept, wait a bit and you're good to go.
