formatting magneto optical disk

Who could suggest a utility to reformat MO 5.2G disks from default 2048 bytes/sector format to 512 bytes/sec.?

I've heard from someone who'll get back to you on it that it's hard sectoring and that you can't change it. Await the verification from the horses mouth, so to speak!, as soon as he creates his login!

It works for me (tm)

Hello Vladimir,
Bill is correct, the Magneto Optical disks do utilize hard sectoring and can not be changed. I guess that I am the "horse".
