Secure HDD wipe software

I have a hard drive that I need to erase, and while I normally use DBAN (Daren's Boot And Nuke) to wipe drives, in this case I need something that can run from within Windows and wipe a drive that's connected via a USB adaptor. Any thoughts or recommendations?

Good times. I ended up doing a quick format, then using Eraser to wipe the empty drive space (which is the whole drive.)

Good enough!
