My hard drive is RAW and every time I try to format it into ntfs using disk management it is not able to and whenever I try it in diskpart it says Virtual disk error: this volume or device is in use

You are posting in a hardware forum and no one has any idea what hardware you are running. Post ALL of the relevant info ie exact hard disk AND whether this is an internal drive, external drive, NAS, whatever. Post the operating system you are using ie windows, linux, whatever. If this is an external type drive, post how it is connected ie usb, esata, whatever.

Have you run the mfg's diagnostic on the drive?

my drive is external and plugged in via usb 3.0. Using windows and it is not working. If I try to format it it says the simple volume is in use. I don’t know how to get rid of that
