Noob preparing a 20gb HD for an A1200 in Winuae. Halp!

I’ve had a good read of the foums and searched google, but I'm still stuck.
Here’s where I am so far.

I have a raw, unformatted 20gb drive connected to my pc via usb caddy, winuae set up in a1200 mode and a ‘work’ folder/disk with idefix,sfs and hdinstTools loaded.

I’ve added the -disableharddrivesafetycheck parameter and am running winuae as an administrator.

USB drive is set to read/write. I’ve managed to get it to appear in workbench as 'new volume', but I can’t get hdtoolbox or hdsetup to detect the drive. I’ve also changed the tooltypes to uaehf.device to no avail. As a last resort I’ve tried to format it in format – it simply tells me it can’t open DH3.

I’m close to shouting at inanimate objects right now. Can someone save me, please?
