Intel 320 SSD corrupted.. How to re-format /repair it?

Hi,

I have a Intel 320 SSD (300GB). it was with Win 7 & PGP FDE.. It got corrupted beyond repair.. went to a few data-recovery services.. all said cannot retrieve data from disk.

I have given up hope in retrieving the data from disk..what I want is to format it and re-use the SSD. is it possible?

In windows.. it "see" the drive as not initialized.. any attempt to initialise it --> time-out error. (semaphore timeout period has expired)

Any tools to do the format?

I tried HDD LLF tool 4.3.. when it try to format the drive.. I get Format error occurred at offset XXXX: 121 - Device not ready (Timeout)

Regards.SSD
