Uhhh help in old skool DOS!

Im extremly rusty at dos. I got a huge lot of hard drives and im currently fdisking, formatting, and scandisking them (surface scans). But I came across a 3gb hdd and when I go to fdisk and try to delete the dos partition it says I cant because theres an extended partition. ok, I go to delete the extended partition but it says I cant delete it when there are Logical drives in the extended partition. Ok, so I go to delete the Logical drives and it says no logical drives found. what the hell? I never ran into this problem before, any help?

check for non-DOS partitions which may be causing you to not be able to delete, anything NTFS is non-DOS...

IBM do a program called Zap, which will erase all the partitions on a disk and wipe the MBR clean. It can be found on this IBM page . It makes wiping partitions off disks easy and quick!

I read this to be a no, Allan. But I'm not a lawyer, I've just given lawyers lots of my money over the years! LOL
