I ran that command... it sat at "Fromatting..." for about 20-30 minutes or
so.. then had the following error:
lizard# camcontrol format da1 -v -w

Ok.. how long should that format take? it's a 9.x gig drive and that

Try this instead:
camcontrol format da1 -v -w
That will issue a non-immediate format command. It may be that your drive
doesn't like the immediate format command but isn't returning an error.
