Why cant I Reformat my passport ultra 2TB?

My passport ultra 2TB hard drive is inaccessible and I am unable to reformat. when in "Disk Management" it shows up as RAW format. I am unable to reformat it to NTFS. Disk Management says reformat failed every time.

I've given up on disk management. Use diskpart

I've had to use diskpart on 3 drives recently with 100% success.

If GParted can't get it going, nothing will. If you can't get it working using the instructions in that link, its safe to assume the drive is damaged.
