External HD has malfunctioned

By manna_mann ·
Today I installed my new 320GB LaCie External Hard Disk with my PC. For some reason I choose to reformat to NTFS using the built-in Windows format option, and for some reason i got impatient with the process and clicked cancel.
This now seems a pretty dumb thing to have done, seeing as how the device can no longer be recognized by Windows (I get the usual yellow pop-up from the notification area) when i connect it.
Is it really that easy to wreck a USB hard disk, or can something be done?
