First please do not use capitals as that is considered shouting.

Why are you using Fdisk to format the disk instead of Disk Management?

Firstly FDISK is not for formatting, it's for partitioning. If you're trying to run it from a floppy disk, it likely can't find a SATA drive.

Why do you want to format the drive, if it's working? Is it to change it to NTFS, or what?

As bremner says - why not use Disk Management (assuming you're running XP or later) - this will allow you to repartition, and format to whatever you want.
