First I would advice to try to format it via disk management.
Second is try to format via CMD menu.

To open disk management go through:
Control panel>administrative tools> computer management> then disk management on the left> then right click and format fat file system or as per to your convenience...

SOURCE: I have Iomega 1tb External

Please connect it on another computer and format it from the command prompt. Once it's connected, note the Drive letter, i.e. E: or F: or which one. Now open the command prompt by clicking "Start", then "Run" (windows xp) or "Start Search" box (win vista and win 7) and type in "cmd" (without quotes), press enter. The commands are as follows, I'll assume it's drive letter is F:, in the command prompt window, type in "F:", press enter, then "format F:", again "yes" or "Y", you will need to confirm another warning, simply press enter and proceed, may take some time. After it's completed, you'll see another message, asking you to assign the volume name, give any name you like and press enter. That's all, if this doesn't fix, let me know.

The problem with this issue might be virus or drive partition corrupted or some technical/mechanical issues with the Hard drive. If it's infected by virus, then you should understand that the virus might still infect your system and so it is not possible to format it from your computer. On the other hand, you should check the usb cable and the adapter, and make sure they are properly connected and cleaned.

Let me know when you are done.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Suddenly my Iomega 1tb stopped working and i

Have you tryed chkdsk in the command prompt, goto command prompt and type CHKDSK F: /F and press enter, this is a tool that checks your drives for any errors and hopfully should resolve any problems, rather than formating it and loosing everything on the drive.
Also have you tryed setting up the usb for mass storage in the bios somtimes there is a setting for this in the bios, or try setiing it back to factory defaults and see if that works.
The only other option would be to update your usb 2.0 driver in device manager in the properties of my computer icon on the desktop. hope this helps in some way and post back what happens.

How i format 8 gb usb sandisk


Usually, it comes formatted. However, you can re-format it (e.g. on a PC or Mac) using the usual disk format utilities, if you don't need any special/specific (SDHC) format features.
For instance, on a PC ... insert the USB SanDisk into a USB port. It will show up as a (storage) device on your "My Computer" window. Highlight that icon ... (put the cursor over it) ... and put your cursor on the FILE (menu) tab and click on it. It will display a drop-down menu with "Format" on it.
Click on the "Format" and it will guide you through the formatting process.
On a Mac, when you insert the USB SanDisk into a USB port, it will show up as a device on your desktop. You can use the "Disk Utilities" software (usually in the Applications - Utilities folder), to format it.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health
