I'm trying to install a Western Digital caviar black 2TB as the fourth internal drive in an early 2009 MacPro running 10.7.5.

 

I'm using Disk Utility to format it - or trying to.

 

I click 'erase"

 

Helpfully, it tells me that this disk is unformatted.

 

I click "erase"

 

I get:

 

"Disk erase failed with the error:

Couldn't open device"

 

Could anyone tell me how to deal with this?
