How can I format a clickfree USB hard drive?

I have two clickfree Automatic Backup USB hard drives.
They are set to mount a CDFS partition when you plug them in.
I remember having to use the format utility on a USB keychain that had the U3 features installed, but this is different. Has anyone had luck formatting these drives into just a plain NTFS drive?

I would try formatting them through the Windows Disk Management. Rather than right clicking on the drive in "Computer" / "My Computer". What OS are you using by the way?
