Format Iomega REV drive from the Windows 7 command line.

I need a way of formatting an Iomega REV drive from a Windows 7 command line. This is due to the Iomega utility I used to use no longer being compatible with Windows 7 machines.

Note this is the equivelent of running the format command on the ImDrvCLI.exe executable provided by Iomega.

Format <driveletter>: /Q /V:<volumelabel> /U /X

/Q is for a quick format; leave it out if you want to scan the media for bad sectors.
/V: Labels the media
/U is unconditional (may be obsolete)
/X forces a dismount if the drive is open in Windows.

You should also be able to do it by right-clicking the drive in Explorer and choosing Format or in Disk Management.
