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



         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)
