Unable to Format 30 GIG Quantum Fireball Plus hard drive?

I had a working 30 GIG Quantum Fireball Plus hard drive. I need to install it in a iMac G3 233 to donate. I tried to partition the first 8GIGs at 7.5 to be able install the system correctly. The partitioning failed with a "Resource busy" error. Then tried a standard OSX extended format, same error. Then tried a zero all data and I get:

Disk Erase failed with the error:

Resource busy

I have it in an external Firewire enclosure, hooked to a G5 MacPro 2.0GHz DP. Any ideas?

Thanks

Richard i"m not sure this will help but the consensus I get reading on this issue you need to unmount the partitions and then proceed with your formating. I know you are a very knowledgeable searcher but am going to include one of many URL's that I found on the subject. Hope this is of some help. Ralph

Hi, digging around a little more I found a suggestion that by using an earlier version of the OS (i/e 10.3) you could do what you need to do. I don't know if it would work but you can try. Ralph
