In order to format the hard disk on a Ricoh 1045 copier, you will need to connect the copier to your computer with a Category 5 (Cat 5) or Ethernet cable. Formatting the hard disk will erase the data stored on the disk; all your saved settings will be removed from the printer as well. Note that you will have to install the Ricoh Aficio 1045 drivers on your computer for this process to work.
