To perform this operation, call the DeviceIoControl function with the following parameters.

C++
BOOL DeviceIoControl(
  (HANDLE) hDevice,            // handle to device
  IOCTL_DISK_FORMAT_TRACKS,    // dwIoControlCode(LPVOID) lpInBuffer,         // input buffer 
  (DWORD) nInBufferSize,       // size of input buffer 
  (LPVOID) lpOutBuffer,        // output buffer
  (DWORD) nOutBufferSize,      // size of output buffer
  (LPDWORD) lpBytesReturned,   // number of bytes returned
  (LPOVERLAPPED) lpOverlapped  // OVERLAPPED structure
);
