    Can you format a locked hard drive or must you unlock it first?

    You dont need to unlock a drive to format it
    you can fit a chip, format it from an auto installer,(like mine) directly in your xbox. You dont need to unlock it, done it mannnnnnnnnnny times, saves having to relock it again

    Xbox format is different from pc format so you can't read a pc formatted drive in an xbox and vice versa. Do it through the modchip BIOS.
