Example:

Format Partition (Level T 'm')
Description:
This command formats the specified partition.
Quick Help:
"FormatPartition, m[Partition],[FormatOpts],[DefectListOpts],[MaxWrRetryCnt],[MaxRdRetryCnt],\
"[MaxEccTLevel],[MaxCertifyTrkRewrites],[ValidKey],[DataPattern]";
Input Parameters:
0 - Partition Number.
This parameter specifies the media partition to be formatted.
0 = User Partition
1 = System Partition
Type: Unsigned 8-bit value
Range: 0 or 1
Default: 0
1 - Format Options.
This parameter is a bit significant value that selects the following options:
Bits 31-6: not used
Bit 5: Enable SeaCOS XF Space Format.
This bit is only valid when the User Partition is selected. If this
bit is equal to 1, the the Format Partition command will only format
SeaCOS Extended File (XF) space.
NOTE: This feature can be enabled or disabled at compile-time. Use
the quick help to determine whether your code supports this feature.
Bit 4: Enable Zone Re-format Skipping.
If this bit is equal to 1, then the Format Partition command will
enable the zone re-format skipping mode during the format operation.
With this mode enabled, the format operation will not re-format
a zone if grown defects were found in the zone.
NOTE: This feature can be enabled or disabled at compile-time. Use
the quick help to determine whether your code supports this feature.
Bit 3: Enable Event-based Format Logging.
If this bit is equal to 1, then the Format Partition command will
display information about error events that occur during the format
operation. This information will be displayed as interim status as
these events occur.
NOTE: This feature can be enabled or disabled at compile-time. Use
the quick help to determine whether your code supports this feature.
Bit 2: Disable User Partition Certify.
This bit is only valid when the User Partition is selected. If this
bit is equal to 1, media certification and defect deallocation will
be disabled.
Bit 1: Disable User Partition Format.
This bit is only valid when the User Partition is selected. If this
bit is equal to 1, the User Partition sectors will not be written
with a constant data pattern.
Bit 0: Corrupt User Partition Primary Defects.
This bit is only valid when the User Partition is selected. If this
bit is equal to 1, the primary defective sectors will be corrupted.
Type: Unsigned 32-bit value
Range: 0 or 0xFFFFFFFF
Default: 0 (Enable User partition Certify,
Enable User Partition Format,
Don't Corrupt Primary Defects)
2 - Defect List Options.
This parameter is a bit significant value that selects the following options:
Bits 31-3: not used
Bit 2: Process the Active Error Log.
This bit is only valid when the User Partition is selected. If this
bit is equal to 1, the Format Client Defect List will be written with
contents of the Active Error Log and the option to process the Client
Defect List will be enabled. If there is no Active Error Log or there
are no R/W-related entries in the Active Error Log, then this bit will
be ignored.
Bit 1: Process Primary Defect Lists.
This bit is only valid when the User Partition is selected. If this
bit is equal to 1, the the Primary Defect Lists will be used when
creating the defect list to be used by the format operation.
Bit 0: Process Grown Defect Lists.
This bit is only valid when the User Partition is selected. If this
bit is equal to 1, the the Grown Defect Lists will be used when
creating the defect list to be used by the format operation.
Type: Unsigned 32-bit value
Range: 0 or 0xFFFFFFFF
Default: 0x00000003 (Process Grown Defect Lists,
Process Primary Defect Lists,
Do not process the Active Error Log)
3 - Maximum Write Retry Count.
If this parameter is entered, the maximum write retry count will be set to the
specified value. This parameter is only valid when the User Partition is being
formatted (Parameter 0 is equal to 0). If this parameter is not entered, the
maximum write retry count will not be changed.
Type: Unsigned 16-bit value
Range: 0 or 0xFFFF
Default: None.
4 - Maximum Read Retry Count.
If this paremeter is entered, the maximum read retry count will be set to the
specified value. This parameter is only valid when the User Partition is being
formatted (Parameter 0 is equal to 0). If this parameter is not entered, the
maximum read retry count will not be changed.
Type: Unsigned 16-bit value
Range: 0 or 0xFFFF
Default: None.
5 - Maximum ECC T-Level.
If this paremeter is entered, the maximum ECC T-Level will be set to the specified
value. This parameter is only valid when the User Partition is being formatted
(Parameter 0 is equal to 0). If this parameter is not entered, the ECC T-Level
will not be changed.
Type: Unsigned 16-bit value
Range: 0 or 0xFFFF
Default: None.
6 - Track Rewrite During Certify Retry Threshold.
If this parameter is entered, it specifies the maximum number of rewrite retries
to be performed during the user partition certification pass.
Type: Unsigned 16-bit value
Range: 0 or 0xFFFF
Default: None. If this parameter is not entered, the default value recommended
by the R/W Firmware will be used.
7 - Valid Command Key.
For a User Partition format, this parameter must be equal to 22 Hex. If this
parameter is not equal to 22 Hex, the command will not be executed.
For a System Partition format, this parameter must be equal to DD Hex. If this
parameter is not equal to DD Hex, the command will not be executed.
Type: Unsigned 8-bit value
Range: 0x22 or 0xDD
Default: None
